Sporty Piko by Patterns for Pirates

Jan 16, 2020

I told you that I was on a kick of sharing projects from last year that never made it to the blog, right?  Here’s another instance of that — because we released the Sporty Piko from Patterns for Pirates back in April of last year and I somehow didn’t brag about this awesome pattern.  THE SHAME.

Okay so listen.  I am not a Disney fan.  I mean…I’m a fan of Disney things, but I know a Disney fan or two and I totally don’t fit into that category.  They live and breathe the mouse and find their way to the Parks as often as possible.  Apparently a super popular style top that they have are “spirit jerseys” and I know when we first started sneaking this pattern that the Disnerds everywhere started getting SO. EXCITED. about being able to make their own spirit jersey.

Who knew?

The pattern itself is drafted for knit fabrics with a very generous, loose fit.  It has a piko style sleeve.  And this super cool colorblocked back piece that allows for fun fabric coordinating.  Or writing things across your shoulders like this.  I couldn’t resist adding some HTV to my top.  Do you blame me?

On a personal style level, I struggle a lot with oversized tops.  I feel like I lose my figure in it and it’s not the most flattering on me.  But I really want to love it because a) these tops are freaking adorable on every person ever and b) I really love the colorblocked back and have so many ideas floating around in my head for it constantly.

To combat my self-made style drama, I sewed this top up using a rayon/spandex blend fabric.  Knits on the lighter side like this fabric tend to have a better drape, rather than tenting off of my curves, and helps to let me feel good in a boxier fit top.

All in all…it’s a thumbs up from me.  What do you think?
