All the teal things: Paco Peralta Draped Top

My party frock in the last post is my favourite colour. I even love how this thread of this colour looks in my overlocker.

So lets keep making all the teal things.

A piece of fine teal woven fabric in my stash turned into another Paco Peralta top.

Just like that!

Technical details

Pattern: Paco Peralta’s Draped Top

I have his original version, but it’s now available as sleeveless and with long sleeves

Size: S-XL (bust 80 to 104 cm). Last time I traced off between an L and an XL, but it was a bit too big. This time I traced off an L .

Changes I made: Instead of cutting the back with a centre back seam, I placed the pattern piece on the fold. Paco drafted the centre back with some shaping, which I lost by being lazy…. I also added 5 cm to the length .

Fabric: This one is a mystery. I think it’s a fine wool. It smells like wool when I press it. I had it marked as being a gift from B via her daughter M, but both of them deny any knowledge of it. Whatever, its lovely to wear.

Love this colour. Love this pattern!

    Beautiful work! I love this pattern too (I made myself a satin top with it). It comes together so easily and the overall effect is so refined.

    Perfect new top. Everytime I see one of these I’m reminded that the lovely Paco gifted me this pattern when I met him in Barcelona and I’ve never made it. This summer!!!

    Cowl neck tops are not my favourite cut, but when I see yours, I like the idea to sew this one with two matching fabrics (or two different / contrasty). Well done! Philo
