Today is all about the Adora top pattern. It’s another pattern in the Unbiased Collection from Pattern Anthology. Designed by Andrea from Go to Patterns, I will be honest and say that I wasn’t so sure about this pattern at first. I mean I loved the design, it’s just not my usual style and I wasn’t sure how it would look on me, then I made it and I love it. I can’t wait to make more now and even a few with sleeves for the upcoming cooler weather.
I made the top using a thin jersey stripe in orange and oatmeal, and I used a speckled chambray for the yoke and sleeves. Now the sleeves are supposed to be made from knit, but I wanted to play more with the contrast. I was also worried about the sleeves being too short and hitting at that awkward “fat arm” place, you know what I am talking about? So I doubled the width of the sleeve so they would be a little longer, but the same great shape. I love how they turned out, and even in the woven fabric there is plenty of arm space.
I made the top length (there is also a dress length) I love the flow of the top and I highly recommend using a thin knit with great drape.
I also love the yoke on the top, a great place to showcase some woven fabric, and the cut is very flattering on the neckline.
I love the back yoke as well, it frames the back so perfectly and is very flattering.
