The top I have made for January MAGAM is an old Style Pattern from 1975. I have quite a few Style patterns in my stash all dating from the mid 70s to 1991. Some I bought new myself and some used ones I got from the op shop.
This was a very quick project. The fabric is cotton jersey from Spotlight and the pattern is just four pieces. It is suitable for woven and jersey fabrics. Because of the loose fit I straight stitched the seams then finished them with the overlocker.
The neckline is more boat-shaped than the illustration would suggest, but it isn't too wide. It was supposed to be finished with bias binding but I made a skinny facing, understitched it, topstitched it and trimmed it back with the overlocker.
My husband took a few photos for me as a nice change from mirror shots.
This is a very comfortable top, easy to get into and get out of and is just right for part of a cruise wardrobe.
Not quite the pattern illustration.
I am very pleased with this simple little top. So easy to make and so easy to wear. It is a pity it is no longer available, although I did see one copy on etsy. It will definitely go on the make again pile.
