swiss dot shirt

A shirt for me!  I’m so excited about it, I have been craving this kelly green color for a long time.  Found this lovely and soft swiss dot fabric on sale at Hancock Fabrics the other day and had to take it home. I’ve been trying to use up the fabric I have, but when I stop to pick up some buttons the other day, I couldn’t help it! 

It’s really soft and comfy, this pattern is about as good as it gets for me as far as comfort wise.  It’s New Look 6871, View D, and I’ve made it before in voile.  Might be making another one soon, too!  Plus it’s just a pullover style top, no buttons or zippers to deal with so it comes together pretty quick!

I think it’s perfect to wear to work under a cardigan.  Again, I made the same adjustments as my first top, no interfacing and omitting the bottom band.  That’s it!  (I made a size 10, just an FYI, I’m usually a size M).

Hope everyone at market is having fun!  I’m headed to Minneapolis this weekend to visit my brother and his family, might just try spending some of my gift certificate at Crafty Planet that they had given me for Christmas.  yay!

    This top is perfect on you… and it’s funny because I made one with the same fabric last week (but not exactly the same design)

    I love green as a colour- don’t use it much in quilting but wear it a lot. Lovley top, so wearable!

    You make me wish I was more patient and better at garment sewing… I think you have inspired me to possibly make my first top this summer. I am normally a quilter and I sew flat things very well. It’s when something has to fit that I start messing it all up =)

    It’s beautiful, Anna, and so are you. love the outfit with those yellow flats. Have a great weekend!

    I’ve been craving Kelly Green too! I just made a skirt in Kelly Green for the series. :)

    Love your top. It does look comfy and so cute with your yellow flats. Have fun in Minneapolis!
