Sea Change Top 02

Sea Change Top 02

A couple of weeks ago, Debbie from Lily Sage & Co, put out a testers call for her new pattern. I immediately jumped at the opportunity.

I love the style of this top. It has kimono sleeves and looks like a crop top, but it hits you right at the beginning of the hip, looking quite flattering for most body shapes (in my humble opinion!). Plus, it’s a quick and easy pattern to sew. Perfect for a bit of self-care sewing!

To celebrate the launch of the Sea Change Top 02, Debbie is offering a discount on all her patterns (Yay!).

Getting back to the test…

I had no major problems with the pattern pieces or the instructions. They were overall quite clear and any doubt I had, Debbie was quick to respond. 🙂

I did two versions of the top. One in a mustard viscose jersey, that I bought in Rome (always a good excuse to talk about Rome ;P) and on the second one (my favourite… that I can not stop wearing!), I used a white viscose jersey for the back and neckline, and a striped woven for the front. I think this fabric combo turned out great and because of its loose fit, I didn’t have to make any adjustments to the pattern pieces.

    The drape on the sleeves is so pretty, especially with the stripe contrast that you added. What a nice easy casual top!
