A couple of successes, the top was finished in April and I finally hemmed my coatigan this weekend.
First a Tilly and the buttons Coco with sleeves from the Simple Sew Bella dress pattern. I could have just cut down the Bella dress pattern, but I know the Coco pattern fits. I was going to make a dress with this ponte, but think it will get more wear as a top.
Then another cardigan/coatigan from the pattern I used for my navy and white coat.
This fabric was originally intended to be a dress too, but it’s wool ponte and quite heavy, I think it would be too warm. The colour is superb, and I think it will be great for the cooler summer evenings, but it’s been so cold I’ve worn it all day, today. It goes really well with my coral grainline scout top.
These two are both great basics that will work well with lots of other items in my wardrobe.
