Summer Day Top in Gingham

Monday, July 16, 2018

These photos have been sitting on my desktop since pattern testing in June, so I am beyond excited to finally share them. Dana from Made Everyday just released her new Summer Day Top pattern. (I am happy to add another fellow Austin-ite to my pattern tester list.) This is one of those woven styles I will turn to again and again.  I already have, in fact, since I have two in rotation. Gingham and summer were meant for each other, so a gingham Summer Day Top was first on my list. 

The neckline is finished with bias binding; no guessing the length required as the the binding pieces are included in the pattern. The top version includes a subtle high in front, low in back hemline.

The style is a bit boxy in shape especially sewn in fabrics with less drape like this shirting. The shoulder is dropped with a short, cap, or cuffed sleeve. This is the short sleeve version. I have to give a shout out to Dana and her assistant, Susan, for a beautifully illustrated pattern. Kudos!

 I would be remiss if I didn't send you over to the Summer Day Top post at Made Everyday to check out the other variations including a peplum and tunic option. The pattern is on sale until 7/17, so snatch it up!
