I finally made myself a Penelope Peplum Top !
I had this pattern since its release but never dared sewing it!
Because, you know, just like my friend Rachel puts it: "I don't sew knits"!!
But, after dear Annika started the "save Sophie" project (!!) Jessica Abbott sent me this most amazing jersey, rainbow and glitter all at once!
Just what I need to wear to lift up my spirit. Even though this one is particulary soft and slippery and crazy to stitch for a "non knit" sewer like myself!
Un patron tout simple mais très effrayant pour moi. Parce que vraiment: je ne couds pas de jersey!! aha! non non! Trop effrayant! trop de risque d'échec!!
Mais là. je ne pouvais pas résister! Jessica de The sewing Rabbit m'a envoyé ce magnifique tissu je ne pouvais pas lutter: les couleurs de l'arc-en-ciel ET qui brillent!!
Juste ce qu'il me fallait pour me remonter le moral!!
I did struggle and my stripes are not perfectly matched at the sleeves: hey! that is my FIRST attempt at stripes matching!! I have got to be kind to myself!!:) I usually AVOID anything that has "matching" involved!
It is sooooooooo soft to wear and I feel like I am wearing a cuddly cloud!
As usual with Kate's pattern, the fit is great. I cut in size S but might try to do size M for the shoulders next time.
I did not have enough of this gorgeous fabric for longer sleeves, but my next version will have longer sleeves for sure! Because, they say the snow is coming at the end of the week and I might have to wear hats and gloves soon!
SO thank you Jessica for this amazing knit!
Thank you for the rainbow and softness, and for the smile on my face!
