First, I’m going to say I can’t believe I’ve only made one of these tops. I absolutely love it. I wore it BEFORE I took these photos of it, which I never do, in case it’s somehow ruined while I’m wearing it. It’s fast to sew, the sleeve flounces are designed to be left un-hemmed, and there are a million options with all the mixing and matching you can do with this top! It’s the latest favorite, and I don’t think it will be moving from that spot for a while.
This is the Love Notions Forte pattern. It includes 2 necklines, scoop, or V-neck. Four shirt views, two dress views, and six sleeve options! So many options for mixing and matching.
I made view C, with the short flounce sleeves for this top. It’s a look I had been wanting to re-create, and I’m so happy to have a pattern for it.
This pattern is on sale for release. You will want to grab it now, and don’t wait to sew it up! It is flattering, fun to sew, and quick. Go scour your Pinterest boards, I’m sure you have something on there pinned that you can make with this pattern. It’s perfectly on trend. Some of the portions of this top can be made from woven too, if you have something with good drape! The bodice will need to be knit, but some of the skirt options should work in woven too!
