I’ve been saving this gorgeous rayon from Drapers Fabric for the perfect project. I’m happy to say that I’m really pleased with the usage here, and I think I’ll have enough leftover for a summer shell top (maybe an Ashton from Helen’s Closet?)
We’re currently testing the Torrens Box Top for Muna & Broad. The pattern is out with our lovely testers and will be released in November! As always, sign up to the email list if you’d like to be kept up to date on the latest.
Size Details: I made the smallest size in this pattern. The neckline is drafted so that it doesn’t show bra-straps (even on my very narrow shoulders). Leila drafted the shoulder seams with some wizard tricks- this shirt doesn’t constantly shift back at the neckline so that it chokes you at numerous points during the day! The only change I made was to crop the shirt by turning the bottom up with two generous folds. I love a thick bottom hem, so that was perfect!
I love your descrtive writing … especially the comment on how tops slip back and choke the neck …. something i thought only occurred frustratingly to me. Wonderful honest reviews. I also saw you mentioned Drapers Fabric and checked it out to joyfully find its only 2 hrs from where i am in Waikato. Its really hard to find fabric in nz that is a little bit different or special or just a nice range of colors in a certain range so thank you.
