Repeat

16 May

Seeing as I had the Bonnie top pattern still out, I thought I’d quickly whip up one more. This time out of a lovely jersey (I think 95% cotton 5% elastane) I bought last year at Raystich. My me-made wardrobe doesn’t have many plain tops but that’s what I often reach for on lazy days. They’re also handy for putting together me-made outfits.

I’m really pleased with how the top turned out and love the color.

Bonnie Top

13 May

I really love the Bonnie Top from Blue Ginger Doll and my previous versions in yellow and crazy geometric print get worn a lot. Because it is such a comfortable top I often reach for it in the morning, but at the same time I think it looks ace and often wear them out in the evening. So it was Bonnie I had in mind when Dragon Fly fabrics had a little sale in November and I purchased this beautiful print. It’s 95% cotton 5% spandex and it feels just wonderful.

There’s not much to say about Bonnie – I found the best fit is size 10 for chest and above, grading out to 12 at the hips. I also tried to reduce some of the gathers in the sleeves but I wasn’t overly successful.
