Happy St. Patrick’s Day, friends! By all means, this is the most interesting version of a holiday that the world is going through right now, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t celebrate a little bit. And wear green while we’re doing it, of course! It’s such a scary time with the threat of COVID-19 running rampant everywhere, and we’ve been practicing a very strict version of social distancing. Which….with that comes a bit of SEWcial distancing too!
Last week, before the suggestion to self quarantine came out, we drove ourselves a couple of hours to Ohio and got to spend some time with the Sly Fox Fabric ladies. It. Was. So. Fun. I learned all about their business, got to meet them in person, and swooned over all of their beautiful fabrics. One in particular caught my eye and I couldn’t resist making it into a St. Patrick’s Day top. But honestly….it’s going to be getting a lot more wear than just for this holiday. Isn’t the floral just so gorgeous??
I wanted a top with a little extra sassiness to it, so I decided to try adding the flutter sleeve from the P4P Flutter Wrap pattern to the bodice of the Favorite Tee. I was not disappointed in the results. Not even for a second. HOW FREAKING FUN ARE THESE SLEEVES?!?!?
I’m just a dorky little smitten kitten over here about this entire top. The Favorite Tee has the most aptly chosen name ever. It’s a favorite of mine. Fitted in the bust, looser in the waist and hips without being over sized, and all the things that momma likes. I tend to ride the lazy train A LOT and don’t often choose a vneck style, but I really should make more. Because seriously who doesn’t love a good vneck top? Once you’ve mastered your technique, it’s easy breezy to assemble. One of my “tricks” to getting a spot-on vneck isn’t really a trick. It’s a reminder that you need to use pins, go slow, and baste the neckline in at the v part.
If you do that…you’ll be gravy. I promise.
Have you been convinced to repeat this make of mine yet? Because I seriously think you’ll love it if you do!
