Yes! There's a brand new pattern tee'd up and ready for you! Like the No-Zip Skirt pattern, I was intentional in my design process. With the skirt, I set out to solve a problem many sewists have a hard time getting over... putting in a zipper! Well, I was just as intentional in designing the Count The Ways Top. Here's what this pattern does:
Here's what it comes with:
Lots of options and opportunity here. You can color block, add embroidery, pleats, topstitching, piecing or use it for scrap busting. Make it in something silky or sequined and have a quick top for the holidays or piece together your favorite scraps and add fringe to the hem for a bohemian look.
Here's the Count The Ways Top in a viscose twill, chambray with yarn topstitching (learn how to do that here), a windowpane plaid with a binding turned to the inside and even French terry (I made matching Coffeehouse sweatpants to match and wear that outfit almost every day).
And here I did a pieced version using leftover chambray, batik scraps and lots of topstitching.
The Count The Ways Top on sale in the shop for $7.80!
