Same size, same slightly too long sleeves, different fabric. This time I used some printed scuba from Spotlight. And had enough to make a skirt to go with it!
Scuba fabric is quite substantial but is also rather slippery and not all that heavy. I don’t have the same issue with the top pulling backwards in this fabric. It was very easy to sew – mostly on the overlocker – and simple to hem with the twin needle. I did pay attention to the pattern piece placement when I was cutting out in order to have the colours of the print where I found them most pleasing.
As it turns out I tend to wear these pieces separately more often than I wear them together. The skirt is great with my chocolate brown long sleeved tee and Harper jacket. And the top layers easily over a long sleeved tee when the weather is cold and works well with Misty jeans. Scuba is definitely not a summer fabric, but it works beautifully in winter (all that double knit polyester)!
This time I got the combination of fabric and pattern just right.
