while the color doesn't look to me like either of the pictures, it is my new favorite. i cut out the size i measured in the fen, but made the neck opening smaller. after i had it put together... but before sewing the hem... i decided to make the hi-low effect a bit less pronounced. i also added pockets.
this was a very simple + quick sew... and the results make me smile. the combination of just the right weight linen and the cut of the pattern make for a top that is just what i want to wear right now. this top goes well with high waisted jeans. it can be worn over a pact tank top to confidently bridge the potential gap with other pants. probably my favorite way to wear it is over my black ali golden jumpsuit. i also think it would be super cute over a calf skimming slip dress.
fen, i think i like you.
