strawberry top and straight edges

I finished one of the makes in Joanna's pile today. It's the top that I made the muslin for here. Gosh, that's nearly a month ago! I didn't realise I'd taken so long to get around to making this!

This is the pattern - Butterick 5956, view A.

And here's the finished top.

Those strawberries look good enough to eat - or they would if they didn't look so fuzzy!!

Knowing it's the autumnal equinox today, I remembered to look at the dashboard on my computer and took a screenshot of the shape the sun makes today. I always find it interesting that the edges are so straight at the equinoxes. I suppose equal day and night will make a straight line!

Fascinating stuff! :o)

  2. What a lovely top, I like the style of that. I've never thought about the shape the sun makes before.

    1. Thanks, Jo. Joanna needs to wear a camisole under the top as it's a bit low in the front. Isn't the shape of the sun's path fascinating?

  3. Oh, I love that blouse! Beautiful. As much as I love strawberries I haven't had any strawberry-decorated clothing since I was a child. Might have to change that soon!

    1. Thanks, Jennifer. Joanna chose (and bought) the fabric herself. It was a real pleasure to work with pure cotton after last week's fiasco with the plum trousers!

  4. Beautiful pattern Anne, the strawberries must have been hard to line up. Have a great week xx

    1. Thanks, Chel. I didn't do any lining up of the strawberries - didn't think of it if I'm truthful! - so, if they match, that's a total fluke! :oD

  5. Love that blouse and the fabric is so cute. (I do love strawberries and cream). I just caught up on few of your posts and thought you brave with the 'weird' fabric, as I'd probably not even tried to use it. Take care.

    1. Thanks, Susan. I'm not sure if I was brave or daft to use the "weird" fabric. If it had worked, it might have been brave but, as it didn't, maybe leaning more toward the daft side of the spectrum! LOL

    1. LOL Yes, I can! Best thing about being in the dark - like you are - is that you're heading into spring & summer.
