It took me a while to get the joke. What an I say? I’ve always been slow to catch the punch line! 😜
The new easy as a t-shirt Nottingham Top from Itch-it-Stitch is quick to sew, classy, and has three sleeve options! It was a welcome project after sewing jean shorts, jean skirt, and other complicated sewing. Although I love more in depth patterns and designs, I love fast and easy ones too!
The Butterfly sleeve was my first choice and after searching my stash, went straight to the “good” fabric. It worked out when the fit ended up perfect. (I did my usual shorten the bodice). Bonus that it’s in my favorite colors and matches Belize Shorts, another pattern with lots of options!
It fit so well and was so quick to sew, that another one was in order right away. This time I chose the elbow sleeves (shortened a bit) so they wouldn’t end up in the crook of my elbow. I used the first of this beautiful glitter French Terry from Simply by Ti Fabrics. Be sure to check out all the other gorgeous colors. I promise you will want them all!
Look at how good it looks with my Liana Jeans! The long sleeved version is the one I didn’t make as we are headed into summer at a fast pace. It will be on my list come fall though! Be sure to check out the other tester versions to see the long sleeves.
Until next time…ta!
