Fabric.com. It is a dark, jade colored, cotton, jersey with a slubby texture that has no lycra or spandex in it. This fabric feels super soft and cool, especially when made up into a version of view C, which has the airy fluttery sleeves. Once again, I did not put the elastic in at the waist, but rather finished the hem with a band of fabric like I did in my previous version of this top. Since this fabric does not have good recovery, I cut my hip band smaller. (Length 32.5", 1/4" seam, 7" wide. Folded over to make a 3.5" finished band width.)
This next picture shows the truest color of the fabric along with the texture.
Here's the top with the white shorts I made in the last post. I love this color with white!
I've tried to show with these pictures the five areas of gathering around the neckline. There is gathering at the center V, over the sleeves, and at the back. This is the only drawback to the pattern, if you find gathering tedious, like I do. But if you can stick it out, the finished top is awesome!
I thought you might like to know that my son's team won the championship for his division at the soccer tournament last week. This is the first championship they have won. Way to go team! Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful weekend!
