When things do not go as planned

I almost always sew at night when the kids are in bed. Usually this works great, but sometimes I am tired and mistakes creep in on my sewing. This project was just like that, it just did not go as I had planned.

I always plan out my fabric choices very carefully, so did I for the Super Mega Comfy Top by Made by Runi. I cut my front and back panel and was very happy that I was just able to have enough for my top. Oh wait, then I realised I still needed to cut the sleeves (grrrr). I didn’t want to waste the fabric I had already cut and decided to cut the sleeves from a different fabric. Now what to do, cut the sleeves from the same fabric that I had planned for the colour block? Luckily I did not do that. I choose a different fabric and it works well. Although next time I would choose one fabric for the bodice and sleeves and a different for the colour block (just as I had planned).
The unique detail about the super mega comfy top are the longer side elements of the top, which look great over leggings, trousers and even skirts! Of course I love the colour block element, which gives me the opportunity to combine different fabrics. I think my first fall items turned out great and will get a lot of wear the coming months.
The pattern is discounted until Tuesday August 20, 9.00 am CET. Just like the women’s super mega comfy top that is also released today.

Fabric: the lillestoff fabric was a leftover from this dress. The uni coloured orange fabric comes from de Stoffenstraat.
Pattern: Super Mega Comfy Top by Made by Runi
Sizing: 80-164 (European sizes). Also the women’s super mega comfy top is available (32-54).
Options: There are three sleeve lengths (short, 3/4 and long sleeve), you can add a colour block to the sides (or sew it without the colour block) and there are two different back lengths (same as the front or longer).
Difficulty: easy pattern (sewing the corners neatly is the only thing that takes a bit longer)
