Adelaide Top

I’ve kind of switched gears a little bit in my sewing and have been sewing a lot more for myself. And it is so fabulous! I had the super honor of being an early tester for one of See Kate Sew‘s new pattern – Adelaide. Friends, I’m in looooove.
The Adelaide TopThis pattern is oh so lovely. It is a really fast sew, and like every one of Kate’s patterns, it’s incredibly well put together.

adelaide3This yoke detail is so fantastic. The pattern comes with a ruffle piece for the yoke, or you can use a pre-made trim like I did. I used a vintage eyelet trim and these fabulous vintage yellow buttons. The fabric is also vintage – a linen that I found at a thrift store awhile back. I basically love everything about this top.

adelaideYou will adore this pattern as much as I do. The sleeves, the yoke… sigh. Perfection.

  1. JESS, A FAB PHOTO SHOOT WITH CLOSE-UPS your “Adelaide Top” sewn in vintage floral red and blue with green leaves in linen, no less! Practical to coordinate with every color of pants, right? LOVE the 2 yellow buttons on the front yoke as well as the vintage cream lace highlight the bodice. Your smile says: “I’m HAPPY” with this new pattern from See Kate Sew. Bravo for perfect sewing for yourself. Thanks for sharing. Sarah in Minneapolis
