Blast From The Past – The Hello Sailor Top

Another make I actually finished at the beginning of the year is ready for be blogged about finally. This is the Hello Sailor Top by The Fold Line. I got this pattern for free when I created an account with The Fold Line ages ago. It stayed on my to-do list for a while.


For this one, I used fabric from my local Abakhan store and it is a craft cotton. I even managed to do a little pattern matching, although I only had a small piece.


Unfortunately, I do not remember much about the construction as it was way too long since I finished it. However, I did follow my usual, finished any edges exposed on the inside on the overlocker and left those edge that I knew would be enclosed in bias facings or hems.


I do remember that adding the bias tie to the back neckline gave me a bit of trouble and I ended up doing my own thing to finish it.


I have been wearing this top throughout the summer . I particularly love the back detail.


I do intend to make a few more version and I already cut another in chambray, but its just waiting for me to get to it. Possibly next year, other projects have jumped the cue and Winter is coming 😉
