Flutter Sleeves and Foxy Floral

Mar 17, 2020

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!
