Juliette top - kneesocks and goldilocks



I'm no superwoman with superpowers, I just try to do my best, and sometimes I fail.
But I don't have time to dwell on a problem, I try to find solutions, and move forward!

OK, and now the truth...
I made crappy pictures, then tried every button in Lightroom to fix it...
and ended up with this vintage look...  Hope you still like it!


This cute little top is the result of a collaboration between Sewpony and kneesocks & goldilocks.
I am a fan of both of them, so those two working together is a win-win situation for all of us.

The Juliette pattern comes with a number of options, but the trademark is definitely the flutter colar,
so I surely wanted to use that option in my sewing project.


Fabric picking was a bit of a struggle for this one. I wanted to make something that stood out,
but ended up with the most plain fabric I could find in my stash, - a vintage bedsheet -
since in the end, I just wanted the piece to stand on its own. 

The A-line shape makes it a rather wide top,
so I combined it with jean shorts which works well I think.


The pattern is quite versatile and has 4 different sleeves, 2 collars and 2 lenghts, 
so enough options to play with! It is a quick and easy sew, even for beginners,
because there is no zipper or buttonhole on this one!


This is my 10th blogpost about a Sewpony pattern, so if you're interested, go and check out my previous Sewpony dresses, because Suz is giving a discount on al the patterns in her shop!
