This, the first of my stash-busting projects, is sewn in an oh-so-soft blue-marled, light-weight Merino knit. It fits beautifully and the colour is perfect because grey blues and blue greys make my dark blue eyes stand out (a girl’s gotta make the most of her limited assets).
I used Butterick B5203 with a simple loose collar added to view “B”. I find that I can make the entire top on my overlocker so it sews-up in a jiffy.
We’re just starting Spring here (southern hemisphere) so this top will be perfect for shopping expeditions on slightly ‘fresh’ days.
I’ve knotted the bottom corners of the tunic because I’m top heavy (undone, my bust makes the tunic stick out like a huge wigwam) and my hips/derrière are my best figure feature. This way, I get to show them off.
