Cuff Top on repeat


Well, this is Cuff Top number two, and number three has already been sewn (sneak peek here), and I think it’s fair to say that it’s become a TNT (tried and true) pattern for me.


These photos were taken in Daylesford in August, by my lovely and talented bestie Sharon, when it was zero degrees.  Yes, I was freezing!  The things we do to document our makes.


Like my last, this version utilises the round neck alteration provided by The Assembly Line on their website.  The link to download the new neckline facings is located under the diagram. I used the facing to redraw the front and back necklines, but then finished the neckline with bias binding.



My other alterations were to remove the centre front and centre back seams as I didn’t want to break up the print.  I also performed my usual 3/8″ (1cm) forward shoulder alteration.


The fabric probably needs little introduction, it’s Nani Iro double gauze in the Nani Lei print.   I purchased this fabric last year from The Cloth Shop (work).  This fabric is now out of stock, but their Nani Iro offerings can be seen here.


I’m in Adelaide with my eldest daughter this weekend and wearing this top today with my first pair of Style Arc Barry Pants.  Today’s activities include a tour of the Haighs Chocolate factory, fabric looking (The Drapery) and lastly watching the Hockeyroos play India!
