Welcome Back, Hot Pink

Madras plaid was on sale the month of May at my local fabric shop, so I acquired 2 or 3 different versions. As I was making up this top, it occurred to me to me, "I don't think I have worn hot pink since 8th grade." I have to say, I didn't miss hot pink, but I think I can stomach it again, at least in a plaid.
This is a simple tunic top from Burda 5-2009-115. Actually, it looks simpler than it is. I'm not fond of fussy little facings, which I don't have a lot of experience with. I should have done a doubled yoke here instead. These are true "cap" sleeves, so they don't attach to the entire armscye. The lower part of the armhole is bound.
I think I like the style and I may try it in another fabric.




It turns out that the back zip isn't vital, but I'd rather just stitch it in than regret leaving it out.

  2. I love the hot pink on you...you should wear it more often. The top looks perfect for summer. The shorts are great too btw. I never got around to commenting on them.
