Ethel the third

Another repeated pattern, another of last year’s garments – Style Arc Ethel, in printed cotton jacquard leftovers from another project (fabric originally from Darn Cheap Fabrics).  Because this top is pieced you can really make the most of strangely shaped scraps!

I’ve sewn this top in size 12 (the same size as both previous versions). It’s a roomy style, and super comfortable to wear. You know I wouldn’t wear anything that wasn’t comfortable!  The pants I’m wearing it with are the Ethel pants.

From the Style Arc website: This gorgeous boxy shaped top with angled design lines gives your wardrobe a new and fashionable look. The wide facings give this top structure and style. This pattern has been cleverly drafted to cover the top of the arms whilst not losing any of the design elements. FABRIC SUGGESTION: Linen, Crepe, Silk, light wool.

Other information about this pattern can be found in my previous posts here and here.  It’s a great one – highly recommended.

  1. that looks so much better on than it does in the drawing, great colors on you again. I have a hard time with StyleArc patterns due to their lack of actual garment photos

  2. I have made this pattern too but mine was not quite as successful. I found it ran very large and I had to run it in quite a bit to fit. I do like the panels though. Yours looks to be a much better fit than mine and I do like the floral.
