Keeping it simple

I made a top last week.  I desperately need a few new tops for the warmer weather.   Most of my tops are looking very worn and on a positive note they are getting a bit big for me as I am slowly, slowly shrinking.

I pulled out my Farbenmix Fano pattern and some "stella" knit in black.

A thumbs up from me.  The shirt is comfy and I like the yoke with gathered front. The gathers are great for a bigger bust.  Now I need to decide what colour to make next!

Oooh I haven't made any Farb patterns for 'grown-ups'!
I love this Sara - the little gathers and shaped yoke are lovely.

I love your blog! You are very inspirational to me and many others. Nice job on the top. You deserve to make things for yourself as all of your other work seems to go to others!
