MERCHANT AND MILLS • The Top 64
Taking inspiration from the classic fishermen’s top, Merchant and Mills have created a style that is more than a jumper, but less than a jacket. This top features raglan sleeves, both centre front and back seams, together with pockets which are cleverly set into a horizontal seam.
It's perfect for taking you from Autumn through to Spring, I've recently made one in Robert Kaufman's Yarn Dyed Essex Linen in Black, you can read my review by clicking here. More recently I've made a dress version of this style inspired by the version I saw made by Merchant and Mills.... it's a really simple pattern hack, find out more by clicking here.
