Sew All 26: X & Pattern Anthology

We've had a whole bunch of rain here lately.  Last night was especially stormy.  There was just enough lightening to light up the room, but not close enough to bring the baby dills running from their slumber.  About 11 Mississippi's away.  And the whole garden is vibrant and sprouting.  Rain is good.
Except when you're trying to take photos for a post, in which case a few cloudy days makes a simple task difficult.  It finally stopped this morning so I could get some photos of my new Parisian top from the new women's collection Pattern Anthology just released!  They've got 4 women's tops "Just add jeans" (or sequined stretch pants, as the case may be ;)
It sewed up like a dream.  I wondered if there would be an issue using a woven collar with the knit shirt, but it not only works, it fits like a glove.
The only changes I made were to make it a high-low hemline instead of a band and I cinched up the arm bands with a bit of the woven fabric.
Nice job, ladies on a great collection release!  Pattern Anthology.  Go.  You'll want to check out all the designs.  And then sew up half a dozen of each.  SO comfy.

  1. Beautiful! I love the hemline. I just got a shirt with that hemline. And your lips look luscious! xox

  2. It looks darling on you. Great job! I'm hoping the sewing industry gets a clue pretty quickly about plus sized women wanting to sew for themselves. The knitwear industry sure has. Time for the sewing industry to come around.

  3. Ann, I was going to say the same thing about Katy's lips! Is that weird? Katy, you have beautiful lips! Ha!

  4. Looks fantastic! I love the fabric and the cute cross stitch! Great alterations!
