Just a quick catch-up post on some sewing I did over the Easter break. Another three items ticked off SWAP plan. Yay! Almost finished
Knipmode Aug 2017 #2 knit top
Similar to the one that I did back in October. The pattern has the bust darts placed horizontally between the bust. It kind of works with the rest of the design, but is VERY dependent on having the right bra. Just a cm off with the bust height and throws the effect right off. I have rotated the darts to the side seam – much better!
Love the seam detail of this design. I’ve included in the my SWAP plan because the design lines are in keeping with the geometry theme and work so well with the angled yokes in the pant designs.

Cotton knit using my TNT pattern (Ottobre origins) with a slightly scooped neckline. I mainly bought this fabric for the colour but it is a bit thinner than I would have liked.
