Another Bonnie top

5 Nov

I’m not suppose to be sewing for me. I have a top secret project I’m working on with a friend and G. has been begging for some new shirts. But….. I had the pattern right there and the fabric sitting on top of the chair. What could I do? Besides the Bonnie top is super fast to sew, just two hours.

The fabric is a lovely knit I got from Girl Charlee (90% cotton and 10% spandex) and it feels wonderful. As I really loved the fit of my previous Bonnie, I kept the sizing exactly the same (size 10 for bust and above, grading out to 12 at the waist and hips). The only change I made was to slightly reduce the amount of fabric in the shoulder of the sleeve so it wouldn’t be quite so gathered. And I think it worked out just right – a little gathering but not too much.

I think print really suits the boatneck style and I’m quite pleased with the final result.
