Learning is awesome, this semester had made me absolutely certain that this is what I need to be doing with my life right now. With long days and a long commute, time with Darron and the kids becomes my highest priority so personal sewing hangs pretty low on my list. That's not to say I haven't made anything lately. There were those bridesmaid dresses I keep talking about but haven't shown you yet, and I'll sort out some photos of my school stuff eventually too, but I have still managed to make some stuff.
Like this Sunny! At the start of the year I bought a bunch of top patterns from Style Arc, this is the second of that lot that I've made.
This was super quick to make. All up it took about hour to run it up on the overlocker, then twin needle for the hem and sleeves. I used a teal mid weight drapey cotton/acrylic knit I've had sitting around for a couple of years and it was perfect for this pattern. Its soft and warm without being bulky.
The cocoon shape is a new one for me, and I must say I'm glad I tried it out. It is a seriously comfortable top, casual without being sloppy. I'd like to make one in a heavier weight fabric but i'm a bit concerned that with too much body it might turn out like a big round bubble, which is not the look I'm after.
Pattern: Sunny from Style Arc (Size 12)
