I made a new top! I used the Day Tripper Pattern for the second time (the first one is here, and I’m even wearing the same grey skinny jeans in my pictures of the first one as I am for these pictures). I left out the shoulder tabs and the pockets for this one and that made it very fast to put together.
I shortened the bottom by a couple of inches this time, and got rid of the high low hem. That was the only change I made to the pattern. Except for the collar of course that I shortened so it wasn’t floppy.
I used some rayon jersey from fabric.com for the body and some jersey from Mood for the trim. I was soooo lucky to have some navy jersey lying around (to match the navy stripes in the main fabric) because I didn’t think about what I’d use for the collar and stuff until right when I wanted to start making the top and I would have been bummed if I couldn’t find anything in my stash that would work.
I like quick projects like this. And I also love how the same pattern can come out looking so different depending on what fabric is used. It makes it fun.
