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.
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)
