Stripes and polka dots! Love them both and knew I wanted to combine both in this top.
I fell in love with this stripe. I purchased it at a quilt shop about an hour from my home. I had no intention of using it for a quilt, I knew I wanted a top from it. I also thought I had purchased enough to make what I intended but I came up short so I found a pattern that would work and had a Tim Gunn moment!
This polka-dot is from my stash and I knew I wanted to have some fun and play with these fabrics together.
This pattern is from Deer and Doe and is called the Datura Top. I made this last summer in a denim that I just love! This version is the other view of the top.
As you can see, I added piping to the collar and at the center back, I added a wedge of the same fabric. The pink collar is from the same quilt store I purchased the stripe from.
I almost forgot to add that I included an exposed zip--just for fun!
This pattern is very well drafted. I just made sure the bust dart hit me where it needed to and that this fit well before stitching up.
Really, that's it! I now have a very colorful top for the rest of the summer!
Thanks for reading!
