In 2015 I made my first dress. It was Tilly and the Buttons Coco Dress and I still wear it now. But I loved the idea that you could also make a top using the same pattern and have been on the look out for nice material ever since.
You can't really see it in the photos but this sweatshirt material is glittery! With super soft fluff in the inside.
So on a really hot bank holiday weekend I decided to make a nice warm top ready for the autumn! It actually went really well as all the templates were ready cut from making the dress. The only thing that really slowed me down was the front pocket as I had to design that for myself. In the end I was inspired by the pocket on my dhb sports top. Using ribbon to edge it makes a pretty little detail.
I'm really pleased with it. I just need some cooler weather to wear it in!
