This pattern is OOP, and our scanner is on the fritz, so I've had to take a picture of the envelope. It's not a very old pattern - although I can't find the copywrite year - but I guess not extremely popular. Although I think it's super cute. I made view B with straight grain, but it can also be cut on the bias. The fabric is a recent purchase from Gorgeousfabrics.com. It's a thin white on white embroidered cotton.
Here at the side you can see the button and loop closure at the waistband. There are tucks on the side front and side back to give it a bit of volume through the mid-section. I find this style deceptively flattering, especially if you want to camouflage some tummy rolls or want to wear it to a big dinner.
I did make the top edge very fitted so that I can lean over without any cleavage peek-a-boos. This is a must for me since I have small boys and bend over frequently to get to their level.
This top was made to wear under my various jackets. Here I am wearing it with this jacket which I made last May. All my other white tops had collars or higher necklines that didn't go so well with a collared jacket.
Here's the button-and-loop closure at the waistband. The side seams were sewn with French seams.
I'm currently working on an unlined jacket that I cut out in December of 2008. It's going well, and I'm hoping to have it done by the end of the week so I can keep my one-jacket-a-month goal on track.
Now, I must brag on our weather. The high today was 70 degrees. It was truly a gorgeous day. Plus we bought a new-to-us car and drove it home tonight so now I have my freedom back. Hurray! This next picture is of my youngest climbing a Crepe Myrtle in our front yard. He must take after me - I never met a tree I didn't want to climb when I was a little girl.
