I went straight for this Palmer/Pletsch boat neckish top pattern right away because a boat neck always speaks nautical to me. Only found one Pattern Review on this top. The review was quite thorough so I used her good advice and omitted interfacing the facings.
Question: Is nautical only red, white or blue?
I've had this bargain table Joann's striped knit for at least two years and decided to use it for my nautical top although it's brown and white. Think I paid $2.50/yard for it. I have lots left, and the remainder could easily become a dress or the maxi skirt that I've been contemplating.
The five pattern pieces that went together without a glitch. I chose View A with the 3/4 sleeve. It's nothing really special - I call it an easy going top. Fits well and will go with brown or white pants. I just might make another easy going top in a solid color.
One nice thing about sewing is finishing the project so you can move on to something new...
I wanted to show the new additions to my sewing library that were thrifted for me by my Mom.
I've review all four. Good sewing resources never really grow old. Thank you MaMa!!!
