Oh no, it’s monday!Let’s beat the blues with some cute pjs while imagining we have one extra day chilling, right?
A while ago I reviewed GBSB newest book by making this pair of trousers. Always intended to use them as loungewear. I’m a ‘matchy-matchy’ kind of gal when it comes to pjs & lingerie. Pj top was added to my “always moving by never ending’ projects-to-sew list.
Since the fabric is on the warm side; there was no question the top needed to have long sleeves. I’m always cold anyway. There are so many lovely knit tops patterns out there however on my stash, I had a choice of two: The plaintan(free) and the Agnes. (Gift from Tilly)
The Agnes top is such a well develop and easy pattern; I have nothing really insightful to say besides I’m in cosiness heaven! I feel very cute too. The gathering on the bust reminds me of an italian designer that uses that design detail on their underwear briefs to highlight their clients asset.
Size wise; I’m between size 3 and size 4 on her patterns. I used an unaltered size 3 for this version.
Here is a better picture of the neckline detail. Sorry this picture feature a un-pressed and un-hemmed fresh-from-the machine but going-to-the-iron top.
Pressing knits is super important and I always do it.
