Ottobre Design 01/11 Meet Up Tunic #33
I had thought that I had a good match in my stash for the ribbing but I didn't. The blues I had were either a bright royal blue, a blue that was almost gray, or baby blue. I looked in the local fabric stores and still couldn't find a good match. Color matching is such a funny thing that I didn't trust ordering off the internet. In desperation, I looked to the pile of clothes that reside in my closet waiting to be made into something new. An old t-shirt of mine was a better match than all my other options. It's not perfect, but I think it's good enough.
I love the combination of the 2 fabrics, City Weekend Yellow Gold Cafe Dot Interlock Knit and Anna Maria Horner Little Folks Voile Little Honey Ink. I'm thinking of using a different pattern to make a similar top for either M or B with my left over fabric.
The pattern is pretty much straight forward. I didn't run into any diffculties making the top. My only problem was that I traced off a size 152 and it's a little large on K. A 146 would have been a better fit.
Hopefully, my snaps will make their way here today, along with the Passport Dress & Jacket pattern.
eta: The snaps arrived yesterday evening and I'm too lazy to write another post just to share pictures of K wearing the top...
The snaps are lighter than I expected but it's finished and K likes it. Good enough for me!
