I made up Vogue 8495 back in 2010 when I was pregnant with Milla, and although I liked the shape of the top, mine was too big (even as a maternity top) and the seersucker fabric I used made it stick out, tent-like. I didn't think about making the pattern up again until I saw Leith's beautiful version, and I realised that the softer Liberty lawn would drape much better, and that I had a piece of Liberty Pointillism (from when Kate destashed fabric) that I could use.
It took me a while to make this up - I think I cut it out (a size 8 this time) before we went on holiday in May, but then shelved it until I went away for a craft weekend with friends in October. But now that it's finished it's been on high rotation - it's soft and comfortable, and feels a little bit smarter than a t-shirt. I've been wearing it with jeans or a denim skirt, and I think it would also look good with skinny black pants. Not that I have any of those.
In other exciting news I have almost finished sewing the Alder dress that I cut out on the same craft weekend - just need to finish the buttons and buttonholes! Hooray for finishing long-neglected projects.
