Wearable toile Rushcutter top

I sewed this version as a wearable toile. The initial goal was to test the pattern before making it as the top of my best friend’s wedding outfit. The making is therefore far from perfect …

As you can see, I used a fabric remnant from my Goji skirt for the small yoke on the front. The two pieces work very nicely together set without falling into a total look … not my cup of tea.

The Rushcutter

Kate: I cannot recommend this pattern highly enough - had not fitting issues at all and I think it is going to become a wardrobe staple! I made in a heavyweight crepe which has a lovely drape. The instructions are really clear and the photos and step by step means you have it made in no time. I really like the raglans sleeves and these are perfect for those who are scared of inserting a sleeve!
