I’ve spent some time having a wardrobe rethink. Still love the idea of putting together a capsule for each season, but nowhere near achieving that. I seem to need more basics, things which complete outfits, so that’s what I’ve been sewing.
This is the Merchant and Mills Top 64 in denim-look jersey from Minerva, here. The fabric is a bit lighter in weight than I wanted (on-line fabric shopping – gah!) so I made the top shorter and more boxy to compensate.
Unfortunately the light weight makes the neckline and hems look lumpy – it’s not so apparent in real life. It doesn’t need to stretch to go over my head, so I’ll use some tape next time instead of the facing.
So it’s not a thing of great beauty. But very comfortable and cozy to wear. I’ll put this one down as a wearable learning experience.
I will definitely make this pattern again, and the fabric would be lovely for something more drapey. Maybe for the cardigan Gillian has dared me to make!
