This was a freebie pattern I got with another order from Stylearc. It looked like a quick sew, and it was...I have made it up twice already.
This pink striped cotton knit is from The Fabric Store in Brisbane. I have bought this fabric twice now; once for my daughter and once for me. I used larger grommets than the pattern specified, because that is the size I have. I was interrupted by a visitor just before installing the last grommet, and when I returned, I had lost concentration and put the last one in upside down...it is the most visible one as well :(. The folds in the sleeve are trickier than I expected, because of the angle of the seam in near the armhole. For this version, I interfaced the inset corners at the bottom of the neckband, because I had so much trouble getting nice corners on my first version below.
This mocha fabric was in the remnant bin at The Fabric Store last time I visited. It is a silky soft bamboo and was only $7 for the piece. I didn't put the grommets in this version,because I thought it would be dressier without them, but really, the neckline is probably a tad too low without them. There doesn't seem to be any gaping though, so I'll wear it few times and see how it goes.
