These are PDF downloads from their Etsy store. I admit to being an old-school sewist, and don’t much care for the PDFs. All that taping and matching before you even get to fitting and sewing? Just not the way I roll.
But… Lotti caught my eye. I liked the color blocking, as well as the fact that it took so little fabric. Hmmm, maybe those leftover favorites I’ve been hanging onto could still be used?
I checked their measurements against my own, then printed off only the size I needed (the download comes as a sizing 3-pack). Rummaged around in the knit bit auditioning fabrics, until I came up with this combo. The print is the very last bit. I think there may be a 2 inch strip left over. And if you’re wondering, yes, I still kept it. It could be binding!
The solid colors are from stash. I keep a variety of solids around “just in case”. You never know when you’ll need a pop of color.
I didn’t have enough of the print to attempt matching the stripes (throw caution to the winds!). The sewing was straight forward. The fit is great. A scrappy stylish summer top!
