So I made another set of separates this week for Indie Pattern Month, this time for me!
I bought the fabric for this circle top, oh about November last year in The Fabric Warehouse pop-up sale! It is really summer fabric, I was going to make it for last summer… but alas I’m only getting round to it now!
As I had made this pattern before I knew how easy it is! The fabric was a dream to work with too! I only made one change to the pattern and that was to leave off the self-binding round the edge of the circle, as the fabric didn’t really work, the strips were too wide. I looked for a similar knit in my stash in grey to match but sadly I didn’t have one.
So instead I overlocked the edge, folded it over twice and straight stitched all the way round.
That brings me round to the second item for this post!
This is the 5th Plantain I have made! LOVE this pattern! It is also the 3rd one I have made in Marino. It works so well as a staple top in the winter wardrobe, I have more marine waiting to be made into more of these too!
Fabrics: 1.2m of Lightwieght Striped Cotton Knit from The Fabric Warehouse $3pm
1m of Purple Marino from The Fabric Store $16pm
Notions: Thread from stash
That is all from me for this week folks (boy two posts in a day, record!)
