…and so is this top. Which has roses on it, funnily enough. Anyway, I bought this embossed scuba fabric (which you might recognise from my last post) from Fabricland a few weeks ago on a whim, with no idea what to make with it (typically completely contradicting my own advice). I toyed with the idea of making a skirt, before doing a quick scout of my wardrobe and realising I was instead in need of a loose-fit, comfy tee (my favourite has a hole in it, boo) that is smart enough to wear to the office and casual enough to wear with slouchy jeans on days off.
I searched for a while for a suitable pattern, before deciding to have a go at drafting my own using some existing patterns I already own as a base. I’m rather pleased with the result, although it’s not without its flaws – the neckline gapes a little at the back (a common occurrence for me as I have small shoulders) and I actually would’ve liked it to be an even wider fit than it is, as I love slouchy tops paired with skinny jeans – but, all in all, I think it’s something I’ll get lots of wear out of.
We had a little bit of sunshine this weekend and it’s making me long for the spring – I’m rather bored of getting bundled up in a coat and hat every day (although I do love my Primark bobble hat).
