This project was to be one where I used some fabric from my stash. Whilst searching for inspiration I came across 2 x 1 yard lengths of Butterfly print with a background of Blue and Yellow. I decided to incorporate both colourways into a top using Simplicity 2245. I cut the back, front yoke, feature rectangle and sleeve cuffs in the Blue colourway then the front, centre front panel and back yoke in the Yellow colourway. As this is the fourth time I have made up this design I am becoming quietly confident with the sewing order and fit. Construction details: I omitted the centre back seam and added 2 inches to the length. Within a couple of hours I had a lovely new and unusual top. Next project will be using some newly purchased fabric… watch this space.
