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!
When designing patterns, we try to make sure that tops or dresses have unique styling both in front and back.
The faux button placket in the back means you get the best of both worlds. Pullover comfort with no buttonholes to stitch, but the buttondown look! Here I am in the Portland Convention Center modeling the top at Quilt Market.
The Gathered Back Top and Tunic is another Indygo Junction bestseller. It's versatile front with simple chic styling, and then the gathered back make it a flattering style for many body types, including mine :). Linen, voile, double gauze--even knits all make up beautifully in this pattern. I love this knit floral bouquet print from the Riley Blake Blue Carolina collection by my friend, Christopher Thompson aka the Tattooed Quilter.
Things I love about the Over The Top Tunic:
Huge pockets! Perfect for errand days, especially when paired with the Trapezoid Tote, which expands wonderfully with big wide gussets. Since the top has the deep V neck, you can add a bright pop of color with a tank underneath it, or do like I did, with one of similar color.
And best of all, the back has the buckle, great for cinching in the top for a more fitted silhouette. I love to use vintage buckles from my collection for a special touch! Vintage made modern!
