Full disclosure: this was a pattern a received as a pattern test and it's the first pattern of my co-editor at the Sewcialists (and all round awesome person) Becky . You might not feel that I would be super objective on this pattern because I love Becky, but she lives on the other side of the world and I still wore this to work today because I LOVE IT. This is the Ione Top from Workhorse Patterns . This top is version 2: the v-neck. I left off the sleeve cuff as my pattern is somewhat busy, but I might still go back and add it I think... It's quite amazing how different this looks in the morning versus the afternoon/early evening light! I really like the curved "hi-low" hem on this top. It's a really nice shape at the hem. I would also like to call out that this top goes up to a size 32 (US). That's bloody brilliant . WELL DONE FRIEND! All the deets: Pattern: Workhorse Patterns Ione Top (Version 2) Size: 18 Adjustmen
I had this on my Make Nine for 2019 (as yet unblogged/unposted...). I ended up making it just before the year started - I literally finished it at 3.30pm on New Year's Eve and wore it out that night! There isn't a lot to say on this one. It's easy to wear (which I once thought I would never say about a dress!) and I really like it. I do wonder whether this colour is right for me - it's a bit dress like a crayon / turn into a full body crayon! My arm is literally the same colour as this dress... I need to press that sleeve better! It has POCKETS, which is always excellent. All the deets: Pattern: Simple Sew Cocoon Dress (View B) Size: 18 (ish) Adjustments: Cut a 20, graded to 18 in the hips Added 3" length (1.5" in the bodice and 1.5" in the leg bit) Took some width out of the sides which probably took it back to an 18 all over? Fabric used: Canvas look Lyocell in Deep Blush from the Remnant Warehouse Like it?
