Big Bold Floral Dartmouth top no 3

From Rosenberg & Son at the Sewing for Pleasure Show last month, I purchased 1½ metres of this beautiful large blue floral on a Beige background printed jersey fabric for a total of £6.00. I have no idea of the fibre composition but is probably a polyester/viscose blend. It is stretchy and very soft to the touch.

As I had sufficient fabric, this time I opted for the full length sleeves. I had reduced the width of the long sleeves and again the bodice was 2 inches shorter than the original pattern. As the fabric was so stretchy I opted to take 5/8th seam allowance and this has produced a slightly closer fit – but all good.

This top has become my ‘go to’ knit top for Summer as it has such a nice neckline and being made in a jersey fabric means that it is so very comfortable to wear.
