Amanda at Kitschy Coo has been at it again. Her newest pattern was released today...the Trifecta Top!
Straight from the pattern's description (since Amanda sums it up way better than I ever could!)....
"The Trifecta Top is a versatile wardrobe builder with loads of customisation options! There are three necklines (high scoop, low scoop, and scooped V-neck), three sleeve lengths with hem or band finishes (cap with hem or band, elbow length hem or band, long sleeve hem or band), and two shirt lengths (a hit-at-the-hip hem length and a marginally longer waistband length). Fitted through the bust, there is gentle side seam shaping through the high waist before skimming through the hips. Scrap hoarders will be delighted that there are also options for a tiny pocket, contrasting shoulder insets, and a centred triangle inset to showcase those small scraps you can’t bear to part with. With easy to sew raglan sleeves this top is a perfect introduction to sewing for yourself and testing the sewing-with-knits waters; a super fast sew and straightforward to fit. More experienced sewers will enjoy the myriad customisation options and more challenging insets and V-neck. Colour-block the sleeves and body for a sporty baseball style, utilise the inset neckline triangle for a retro sweatshirt look, or throw something fancy into the shoulder insets for dress up occasions! There are eight sizes included in the pattern, ranging from a 30” to 44” high bust, and a 24” to 38” high waist."
K's top is a size 1 with long sleeves, a low scoop, and hemmed. Mine is a size 3 graded out to a 4 from under the bust down with long sleeves, a low scoop neckline, and hemmed also. I used a hefty white cotton/lycra knit for the main part of both tops and lighter weight cotton/lycra jersey for the contrast sleeves.
I can't wait to try some of the other looks. I think a short sleeved, scooped v-neck top would be perfect for the warmer weather that I'm sure is on it's way. You hear that winter?? It's time for you to take your cold temps with wintry precipitation and hit the road!
