2015 recap: tops and tunics

2015 recap: tops and tunics

following up from yesterday's post on all the skirts and dresses i made in 2015, today i'll recap all the tops i made this year.

i'm especially excited about this post because with the exception of all the tops i made in 2015 were patterns i hadn't sewn before this year.


without a doubt the rookie of the year was the sketchbook shirt from oliver + s. i explained my love of this shirt here, but the proof is that i made it four times with three different fabrics. first there was the blue version i made with fabric we got in jackson hole wyoming, 

then there was the green version i made for a friend's baby in this beautiful forest green and navy fabric from britex

and finally this red and black version i made for the son of a college friend.

another favorite was the 2+2 blouse also from oliver + s which I made three times this year. first in the beatles fabric for miss neela,

another new pattern was the sailboat top from oliver + s which i made from this lovely navy lawn from stonemountain & daughter
