Yes, two Style Arc ‘Annika’ tops. Both combine woven and knit fabrics. The purple knit remnant was from stash, the red is leftover from the V1405 dress I have ready to sew. The tie dye-look crepey woven stuff was from the bargain table at Barry’s, so must have been either £1 or £2/metre. I got 1m of each, but can’t remember the price!
These are almost completely constructed on the overlocker, very straightforward. The ‘trickiest’ bit was the split cuff, but although the written instructions lack detail [as usual with Style Arc] the diagram made it clear enough.
I decided to hand finish the hems, as the fabric is very light and drapey, and I don’t like machined hems on lightweight stuff.
All as well drafted as Style Arc designs always are, and with the easy fit I expected- however, I decided that the fit is slightly TOO easy, and may put two little pleats/tucks under the bust to give a tiny bit of shaping, avoiding the smock look. What do you think? Leave it alone, or put in tucks?
I really like this design, it’s a nice take on a boring T shirt, and you can cut it out of very small scraps. I think there will be quite a few more of these!
This one’s a bit crumpled, sorry!
I wore the red one to the markets today, and got several compliments…and it’s very cool and comfy. Secret pyjamas!
