Do you ever have a pattern that occupies your mind until you make it and get it all out of your system? Rachel Comey's beautifully designed slouchy top Vogue 1247 was that pattern for me and until I sewed this version in pale peachy linen, it just would not leave me alone. Now I find peace and quiet as I wear my pretty new top. And a special little visitor wanted to be part of my photo for you today. Look carefully at the flowers to see my little photo-bomber. :)
first version of this top was made in 2014 out of a rayon challis
with beautiful drape but was oh-so-large and sort of swallowed me, even
though I made the correct size as per the pattern measurements. This
pattern runs big, but then it IS supposed to be a slouchy top, right? So
with this version I made all the modifications that had been swimming
'round in my head since the 2014 version and feel I was successful
in keeping the slouchy top look, yet creating a better 'fit'.
white Ottobre twill pants with this top. Feels so fresh and cool in spite of this horrible August heat and humidity.
Instagram a few days ago and thought I'd show a different view in this photo below, on my zinnia.
