Do I have to tell you how hot it is in South Carolina? It’s miserable hot. This top pattern was made for it. Look at how the model has a pleat in the front that almost makes you think it has a keyhole working there:
It’s not. It’s about 1/2 a yard of fabric chip clipped and stuffed into her underpants. Now you know I like some room up in my clothes- for snacks, a pup, whatever. This is so roomy- well, I’ve had first dates that touched less of my body and I’m a very good girl!
The other reviews I’ve read are for the tank style and it is probably less noticeable without the sleeve awnings- which are pleating up on our faux Amy Adams model- maybe another chip clip was deployed by the stylists! Whatever- it’s roomy- like roomy with a bonus room and a wrap around porch. I used the XL. I may go back and narrow in the sleeve openings a bit.
During my quickie photo shoot it was windy and a family of picnic’rs tried to put down a blanket in my blouse shade. I was agreeable, until I realized it was a mustard based potato salad. I have my standards.
Here goes nothing:
Sorry about the exposure- this is the best shot- not so much wind and it almost looks like my size! I paired it with a Mccalls ‘Learn to sew for fun!’ knit skirt. Ok, who am I kidding? It was Fathers day, I wore it with capri pants to watch the Murder channel sows with my Father while we ate tuna noodle casserole. Cuz that’s how we roll.
That’s Helmutt the destroyer of things- I think he wants the remote or to let me know that his claws need trimming.
I did iron this- I swear, it was after a lot of tuna casserole and perhaps a wee nap.
