The other day I was cruising the Anthropologie website when I came across this super cute top. It was a boatneck top - navy collar bands, hip band and sleeve bands, and a white and green striped bodice. "I can make that!" I thought.
I've been playing around with boatneck style options since I made the muttonchops top, and this looked like a fun variation. Fun seventies-inspired tops are all over the place right now, and I really like it. They're loose in all the right places, you know what I'm saying? If you don't, then you didn't carry two ten-pound baby boys in your belly for more than 40 weeks.
It's springy and fun, and made using stash fabric so even better. The only thing I would modify if I made it again is to drop the front neckline an inch more, and lengthen the back bodice fabric an inch. Maybe if I ever learned how to stand up straight it would hang better, but the odds of that are slim.
Now, on to an even more exciting Anthro knockoff - the Lunar Cycles top! I actually bought this one because I love it so much, but I'm also really excited about making a knockoff and sharing all the various ways to create a completely different look with one pattern. Stay tuned....
