Today I have half a day in the kitchen so I always pop on a nice casual top with a pair of jeans. The jeans I’m afraid haven’t been tackled yet so these are I’m sorry to say are shop bought.
The top is one of my favourite patterns as a go to top. It’s the Esme tunic from the Lotta Jansdotter book and this is the top version. It is a simple sew with a couple of bust darts, front, back and facings so a nice a quick project. The only little struggle I have is the arm holes where they say to “scant 1/8” “ and that is pretty difficult with the curve in the arm hole, I managed it but it probably could be tidier. I love the little cap sleeve on this top, just a little bit over the top of your shoulder and enough to still get a nice tan on your arms.
The top is made in a lovely Atelier Brunette 100% cotton and is a joy to sew with, I love the little origami bird print so much and comes in several different colours, my favourite being the black but that’s just me.I have made this top in several different fabrics and I will continue to do so with lots of different yummy fabrics. I’m sure you’ll see them all this month
