Two plain and simple tops from New Look K6351, a ‘wardrobe’ pattern I snapped up at a charity shop earlier this year. Viscose ‘milano’ jersey from Fabric Godmother. Nothing much to say about the pattern- it’s well-drafted, made up here in a straight size 18, and I like the depth of the V neck.
The fabric is GORGEOUS. Very thin and cool to the touch, drapey but not clingy. I used some of it to make a few vest tops for the missus, and she loves them so much I was ordered to buy more straight away. It’s not cheap [£10/m for plain jersey seems a lot to me] but has a great elastane content and excellent recovery. It also comes in lots of colours, but I needed some plain black/white separates, so hey-ho. Love it. 6m more on the way [including a lush purple woohoo for colour!]
Plain and simple, wardrobe staples. I think I need some more!
I might even knock up the jacket to use as a cardigan…
