When cleaning out the closet last weekend, moving scarves & winter gear to a drawer, I happened upon it and realized that it would work well for this job. My styling was a little thrown together in 2008 but here is how I will wear it now:
The original blog post details where the fabric came from and the alterations I made to the pattern. I made it again a couple of months later, February 2009, as a dress. That blog post is here. I wore that dress a lot in subsequent years on Casual Fridays, at the corporate spot, but it was donated along with the rest of my corporate gear.
A few more pictures of the top ~
Notice the little person in the background!
...and because no picture taking session is complete without a visit of the grandbabies...here they are running around in the yard. It was a little too chilly for Joshua so he stayed in the house.
It was nice to find this top and add it to my work wardrobe especially since I'm in need of tops & tunics to go over my RTW jeans. I've shown it here with a sleeveless turtleneck but when it gets really cold, I will wear a long sleeve turtleneck under it.
I've purchased so many new top patterns recently, that I'm not going to revisit this one. However, it's nice to have a new top to wear to work this week!
...as always more later!
