|Provincial Top, Monkey Pants, Offbeat Oxford Shirt & Andover Pullover Top.|
I had one of those instant "I want that!" swoons when I saw this pattern for the first time. When Terra offered to let me choose a pattern to review from her recent releases I knew this had to be it. One pattern, but tons of looks is a huge draw for me. Seeing all the different photos and different body types looking cute in it was very encouraging too.
I had bought this knit key print fabric years ago, but could never figure out what to do with it. Combining it with some black rib knit had made it the perfect top:
I really love the neckline of this style, with a nice banded edge, and it's a lot easier to do that you'd expect:
On this one I did standard cuffs and a high low hem.
It's very cosy and perfect with leggings.
I also like that this pieced look makes solid color fabrics much more interesting and easy to use leftover scraps of prints for the accents too. This photo from Terra's shop really shows how the shape & details made a basic blue look interesting & professionally made:
Plus, it's a good year-round pattern. Using the puffed short sleeve option, this makes a great top for spring or summer:
I can't wait for warmer days to make some in a few of the summery knits I've got. Stash busting for myself just got more fun!
I received this pattern to review from Terra's Treasures, a paying advertiser on Sew Can Do. The opinions are completely my own, based on my experiences. For my complete disclosure policy, see HERE.
