The Legends top by Stay + Stitch
(previously known as Sew Straight and Gather), known for its beautiful neckline, has been updated with a new option of an A line bodice. I sewed the legends top
for our girl three years ago. It has been on my sewing list to sew one for myself. So now I got the chance to sew two Legends 2.0
with the new option for myself (if you already own the legends pattern the new update (Legends 2.0) will be in your account).
The pattern is updated and now includes option A, the original fit, with a more fitted bodice and option B, an A line bodice. I sewed two tops during testing with option B.
Also the construction of the neckline has changed. Previously the front was fully lined, now a facing pattern piece is used for the neckline. I love this, as I found the double layer a bit too warm for summer weather.
First I sewed the red one, so I could match that with the pants I sewed recently. As this was sewed with a previous version of the pattern, the neckline is a bit higher in the red top. The neckline was lowered a bit for the final version of the pattern. After that I sewed the top with the flower fabric. They have a totally different feel don’t you think?
Did you see the new charm that I have sewed on my top? I love them! I ordered them at AliExpress.
Besides the top there is also a knee and calf length dress included. You can even add pockets to the option B dress. In addition to the sleeve option, you can also sew a sleeveless top or dress. I really love that option as well. But after sewing all these tops the last months I was in need of t-shirts. If you don’t own the pattern yet you can buy the pattern with a 30% discount until 11 July.
