Jumping right on that bandwagon

A review of Friday Pattern Company Sagebrush Top

Reviewed by Love, Lucie on 25th May, 2022

The Sagebrush Top by Friday Pattern Company was released in May 2020. 2 years ago!

So I must be near the last to make it. Or the last to come around to big sleeves AND ruffles.

It’s really out side my comfort zone and I wasn’t sure I was even going to like this one!

I was in between a small and a medium. I didn’t want to risk it being tight across my back so in this instance I went with the medium.

During my research I came across details regarding taking volume out of the front of the front section and also from the sleeve but for my first version I kept with the pattern.

One thing I did change was the neck line. I didn’t like how the neck band seemed to stand up, away from the body on some versions I had seen. Instead I used a traditional bias bound neckband. Turning the whole thing inside and top stitching it down. This also results in the neckline being lowered by 1cm all the way around. Much better for me, I thought.

I also replaced the tie with a button and a small loop of elastic.

I very much like my version.
