|Feeling French, Butterick 5961 in stripes with crop pants .|
The square armhole
is what pops this top
into the chic category for me.
Add that to the comfort factor
and you can understand why
I just keep adding more of these shapes
to my wardrobe.
|Color blocked Ponte.|
|Textures and length for Fall with stretch woven pants.|
The versions I've made of this top
have been worn so much
they are nearly worn out...
A fleece interpretation with raw edges
on the sleeves and hem
(which provide a cool 'roll' trim)
has been keeping me warm
these cool evenings
as it layers perfectly over a little T.
Time to make some more!
I'll be snooping around the ArtBarn
to see what great new fabrics
Marcy has posted
that get my creative juices moving.
Nothing like a little kick-up
to the wardrobe as Fall starts sneaking in.
You can really see the simplicity of the designs
in the line drawings,
offering many opportunities
for pattern and/or stripe fabric combos.
Slim pant has seams down the center front and back
which can simplify fitting
and a flattering stitching detail on the front.
are an obvious choice
but stretch wovens will work too.
A tony update to my 'jeans' collection.
