Tops with Great Details
For the month of May, I took a pledge along with thousands of other makers, hosted by So, Zo... What Do You Know? with the official hashtag of #mmmay18 My pledge was to wear and share Indygo Junction Patterns every day through the month of May. And I did! Here's some of the highlights!
The Turn About Tank
I love patterns with lots of options! It's fun to be able to make clothing to suit our style, and the Turn About Tank is so versatile this way. The pattern offers two different neckline options, and two different ways to wear it (just "Turn it About!")
The pattern suits whimsical, playful prints with the ruffle style or give it a more tailored look in a solid or classic print. I love the flattering fit either way you wear it ("V" in front or back). I wore it multiple times during the month with both the ruffled neckline option, and the lace-up neckline option. See it here in a navy cotton lawn from Moda, a woven from Textile Creations, and a fun Heather Ross print from Windham Fabrics.
The Everyday Tank
An Indygo Junction Bestseller! The Everyday Tank has wide shoulder style for comfortable coverage, which means no bra strap adjustments during parties or errands. The neckline pleats give it a flattering fit at the bust line. Fabrics are a chambray from Robert Kaufman Fabrics and a gauze from Shannon Fabrics. Are you interested in learning about the jewelry I am wearing? I created a post at AmyBarickman.com to share details.
Slight Sleeve Top and Tunic
The Slight Sleeve Top also has flattering coverage for at the shoulder/arm area. The gathered bust design detail is not overly voluminous, in fact, it's just enough that many people who've made it have mentioned how flattering it is. The yoke makes a great spot to add different kinds of handwork.
Naomi made a Slight Sleeve Top with vintage woven gingham from her grandmother's stash she wore during Me Made May with hand embroidery.
