After months of waiting, and setbacks, and having our hopes dashed over and over again, it's finally happened: spring is here! And that means spring sewing, especially tops.
A few months ago I bought Pattern Anthology's Just Add Jeans collection with the intention of having a closet full of tops ready for spring. We'll just say that it's still a work in progress. But I did want to share one of the finished products with you today: the Parisia3n Top.
The Parisian Top is the contribution of Go To Patterns to the Pattern Anthology. It's a simple scoop-neck tee with a Peter Pan collar and 3/4 length sleeves. But despite its simplicity, it produces lovely results: a top that is perfect for spring, fits perfectly, and has a timeless look.
This particular top is made from a peach-colored eyelet knit that I bought at a thrift store (if you haven't noticed, I love using thrifted and recycled fabric for projects: it's cheap and sustainable!) I think I bought three yards for $1. Can't beat the price!
The collar is made from vintage fabric, I'm guessing from the 60's? The peaches and pinks and browns compliment the peach eyelet nicely .
And finally, it pairs perfectly with shorts for the warmer spring days!
This top fits well, I think next time I'll use a knit with a little more stretch for a slightly better fit, but I love the way this one turned out!
