Friday Pattern Company ∙ The Sagebrush Top Sewing Pattern Review
I usually gravitate towards styles that are pared back but with an interesting detail so puff sleeves are quite a step change for me. I felt that the ruffle along the front yoke was a step too far for me personally, so I chose to leave this off which still works well. I've seen other versions were the ruffle has been replaced by piping which also looks good.
This top was a joy to make, the instructions are really clear and easy to follow and there are helpful illustrations too. In terms of sizing I'm a UK size 8 and I made the XS size which fitted me perfectly with no alterations.The top has ties at the back which are another lovely detail, it also means that there are no buttonholes or zips to worry about and means that it's suitable for beginners, that said I think more experienced sewists would also enjoy making this style.
The Sagebrush Top is really wearable, not only that it's a style that's prefect for taking you from day to evening. I'll definitely be making more...
