Ann of Designer Stitch follows all the fashion and knows what’s in style. Just look at this beautiful top she designed and named after Synthia! And if you clicked on Synthia, you will see the lovely lady herself! If it weren’t for Ann and a few other designers, I wouldn’t even know what style is, haha. I wear what I want for the most part. You know what’s crazy about that? This pattern has a full page feature in Pattern Pages magazine and my photo is included along with many other Synthia testers! I haven’t even had time to go check it out for myself!
When I saw the drawings of the Synthia, I loved the simplicity of the blouse with the circle skirt type of ruffle. I really like how it drapes down the arms, creating a very different look from a regular blouse. It’s romantic and flirty, floaty and fun. Since I love sewing with woven fabric, I knew I wanted to test this one for Ann. My lifestyle is casual and I have no job to dress up for, but this top will go out on date nights and to church in the summer. I’ll probably even wear it grocery shopping! The fabric I used is a mystery (polyester, I suspect), blue and white checks with a raised texture. You really can’t tell at all in the photos where it looks like a solid color!
P.S. I’m wearing my top with the Alyse Taper Leg Pants. I made these as Bermuda length shorts too and wear them all the time!
Here are some details from the pattern. I love that there are different cup sizes to fit different bodies!

and the pattern offers cups sizes for fine-tuning the fit of your
garment. Cup Sizes – B, C, D, DD(E).
I didn’t realize my fabric was sheer until I looked at the pictures, oops! I may need to wear a cami underneath! Oh, and you can make this top as a basic sleeveless shell by just leaving off the ruffle! Get your copy while it’s on sale for the next 7 days. Sale price is $7, regularly $10, no code needed!
