Fabric Godmother: A STRIPEY COCO

A STRIPEY COCO

Ok I know I am massively late to the Coco party and totally unoriginal making a stripey version. But seriously this top was made to be stripey and hey I've been busy. Last week I shared my Breton Top inspirations, if you missed it take a look at the Pinterest board I made. For this I used the Coco pattern with a plain neckline and the Bobbi striped jersey. I'm not going to bang on too much about this pattern, I think the photos speak for themselves. Even if I do say so myself this top looks…

Handmade Jane: Anchors Aweigh!

Anchors Aweigh!

If you've been paying attention for the past few years, you'll have noticed that I'm more than a little fond of the nautical look. My favourite colour combination (blue and white) is often used, sometimes with a bit of red thrown in and a liberal use of large white buttons. As far as shapes and styles are concerned I have a huge soft spot for sailor trousers and large-collared sailor tops… Deanna Durbin and friends in Three Smart Girls Adorable sailor collared halter neck blouse (I think)…

Breton Top

Sew U Home Stretch - Breton Top.

I made this top this past weekend, but didn't get photos until today, after I wore it to work. It's a basic boat-necked Breton-style top I made using the basic crew-neck pattern in Built By Wendy's Sew U Home Stretch. Amazon informs me that I bought that book on June 18, 2011. So it's only taken me three years to actually make something from it! (Corporate big brother, you should be making me feel good about my purchases, not reminding me of how long things sit around before I use them…
