GIVEAWAY - Summer Day Top by Made Everyday

Monday, August 20, 2018

I already told you everyone needed a Summer Day Top by Made Everyday here and here. Now you have a chance to win a copy of the pattern!!

The Summer Day Top pattern already has a slew of variations, but I'm adding one more with a gathered sleeve.

Before we get to the sleeve, I wanted to also give a bit of inspiration for fall or at least transitional styling if it happens to actually get cool in the fall where you live. This olive rayon challis from Raspberry Creek Fabrics does the trick! Really it is all about fabric choice and pairing with jeans and booties. I just didn't want you to leave you thinking the Summer Day Top was only for summer.

A dropped shoulder is the perfect spot for a gathered sleeve, and the method is quite simple. 

I moved the sleeve pattern piece 4" from the edge of the fold and cut. The result is an additional 8" that is gathered into the sleeve. I concentrated the gathering toward the top (shoulder) of the sleeve, so there wouldn't be extra bunching toward the underarm.
