A new slouchy top | NEWLOOK 6246
With temps at 63 degrees F this morning, blue skies and oh-so-bright sunshine, it feels more like Spring than Winter, and my new top fits right in the Spring theme with its soft lavender shade of purple.
From my earlier post you may recall my youngest daughter gifted me with this beautiful, sheer, lavender knit fabric for Christmas. Did I say it was sheer?! It is so sheer that even doubling the fabric was still too sheer, so I lined the bodice with a soft white knit from the stash that, with a significant flaw, coupled with too small yardage to make a top on its own, was perfect to line the bodice of this top. NEWLOOK 6246 view B a slouchy, boxy-shaped 3/4 length sleeve knit top pattern was used. Cut a size 10, and the only modification I made was to take in a little under the arms' side seams to make it a little less 'boxy-ish'. I doubled the sheer lavender on the arms and left them un-hemmed. I like the casual look of the doubled sheer knit 'rolling' slightly there.
