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!
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!
