I made this top a few weeks ago from my tilly and the buttons Agnes pattern sent to me by my pattern swap (thank you). I have been so busy reading everyone’s posts I forgot to add my own!
This is the first indie pattern I have used and I am now hooked on more (I ordered the 9-5 bundle so have three more lined up).
I have loved reading everyone’s post and in awe of how many items you are all able to sew in one month.
I have made a few dresses, a weighted blanket, a sweatshirt and a top this month but all with big 4 patterns. The sweatshirt was for my husband and only took a couple of hours on my new overlocker, but although it does fit it’s not a great shape or design which has made me look out for a men’s indie pattern….thinking equivalent of the paprika jasper jumper but for men. Any ideas?!
Anyway, I made myself an Agnes top in cheap fabricland jersey material as a sort of muslin. The fit worked out perfectly so I have been wearing this a lot but conscious the fabric is not the best. I have some much better spotted jersey ready to go so can use this for next months entry now.
I think this is a great pattern, love the reinforced shoulders ( never done that before) and the ruched sleeves (another first) and think I have fooled a few people that it was a RTW ( my overlocker was worth every penny).
