...when I first saw this top on Pinterest I had to have it!
After putting out an APB blog post for help, several readers suggested Butterick 5495 as a reasonable similarity. I went on a wild pattern stash search only to find I didn't have it. Can we say disappointment? I was even more disappointed when it wasn't to be found in local stores either - I hate stressing over patterns. So of course I had to break down and order via Club BMV. I didn't get a chance to make this top during the top challenge - but did get it finished today.
Here's my version. I love the print, but the knit was a bit flimsy to work with. I think I'll have to make this one more time from a different quality fabric as I don't think this choice tells the whole story.
Now there's another Pinterest obsession top.
This will be my first color blocking attempt if I can figure out just the right slightly oversized top pattern. I already purchased the fabric - peachskin in black and in white. Can anybody offer a pattern suggestion???
