.. and it’s a hat trick!Posted: May 26, 2014
Another day, another Style Arc top. This time, it’s Creative Cate. This is a very, very, quick make. There are only 3 pattern pieces; back, front and neck binding, but I think none the less flattering for it’s simplicity, no? I’ve made this pattern up before, in a drapey white knit with a pink, red and beige stylised flower print, I love it and I wear it a lot. I love this one too, although this knit is a bit firmer, 95% cotton & 5% spandex, so not quite as drapey around the neckline as my other one. It might soften up in the wash after a while. What do you think of the print? A bit wild, eh? I love these colours. (The background is Teal, and the flowers are Lilac, Lime and Turquoise). I was inspired by seeing a promotional video this morning of a Kaffe Fassett exhibition which is currently on at the American Museum in Britain.
It doesn’t fit quite so snugly on me. I must get round to sorting Brunnhilde out to more accurately reflect my new size.
It’s been a Bank Holiday here in the UK, so I had an extra day to play. I’ve cheated a bit though, as I haven’t hemmed it or cover stitched the neck band and seams yet, but I wanted to blog it before it got too late. I’m off to finish it now, and hope to wear it to work tomorrow with navy linen trousers.
