After some cold spells and bouts of illness, I am longing for spring weather. I find myself sewing a mix of warm clothing for my freezing reality and springy pieces out of hope for the future.
I made up the Synthia Top from Designer Stitch as part of her pattern testing team and I just adore the result. I’m not really into ruffles as they can seam too girlish for me, but this feels feminine and sophisticated.
My floral fabric is called Floral sketch and has been in my stash for over a year. I’d been petting it until the right pattern came along. I think the floral plus the lightness of the ruffle make me ready for warmer days.
The Pattern Synthia Ruffle Top from Designer Stitch in size 3 (C cup) and shorter length. The Synthia also comes in a version without the ruffle that will make a great basic piece for your wardrobe.
The Fabric Stash woven with a lovely drape. Purchased from Boho Fabrics about 2 years ago. Yay for stashbusting!
As always, thanks for reading today.
