Jaime and I were so excited to make The Top #64 that we both whipped one up yesterday afternoon. We love the look of this fisherman style shirt in the canvas weight solid the sample is sewn in, but we decided to try out some crazy prints.
Once we got over our minds being blown by the construction--the split sleeves that are seamed down the length and the crazy pockets that are actually so easy--it came together pretty quickly.
I took the pattern's topstitching recommendation for my top, and I think it works great with the canvasweight cotton that I used, adding even more structure to this a-line top.
I shortened my sleeve length and hem length quite a bit, as I found the full length made me feel a bit like a clown with this colorful shoe print. I love how feminine and playful my Top #64 turned out!

Jaime used one of her favorite Nani Iro border print fabrics for her Top #64.
