Another completed project from sewing camp, worn just the other day. Like I said, temperatures have been varying wildly here in Sierraville. One moment there’s rain, snow and hail (all within the same hour), the next, we’re approaching the 90s. Welcome to Spring!
The fabric for this top was a combination package from Marcy Tilton Fabrics. Their combo packs consist of 3 one-yard cuts of coordinating fabrics. This top uses two of them. Marcy, Katherine and the Art Barn staff decide what coordinates.
I used a block print for the front and one sleeve, and a brush stroke for the back, and the second sleeve. I chose a nice bright blue (cerulean?) accent for the shawl collar and the remaining cuff.
While I’m not prone to wearing a lot of blue, this color pulls from both prints to make things pop. No, I don’t feel lopsided wearing this top.
Since I’ve made the pattern several times, there weren’t any issues or concerns sewing it up. Easy peasy.
