This is a super-soft, slinky cotton jersey,
with just a hint of silvery glitter.
At 4€ a metre, I couldn’t pass it up!
This is Onion 2017. It went together like a charm (although the neckband could do with a little less ease. I’ll remedy that for the next top). It feels lovely against the skin. This is a top I’ll be wearing a lot. I can pair it with jeans to chill out in the evening, or with more formal black pants to go to work (or grey, or red, of course, but I haven’t either).
It has a tie in the back, but I didn’t manage to take a good picture of it. Sorry!
I hereby officially declare myself an Onion fan! (although, this may sound weird, out of context!) Can’t wait to get and try out another of their patterns.
Another funny oops with the camera – there was too much sun (for the camera, that is. Never for me!) and the light erased my face; it does shows the line of the top well, though.
ETA: You can now read a more technical review here.
I’ll show you the second top as soon as I’ve managed to make pictures… It is Simplicity 4020. Another winner!
Best of all? I still have enough fabric to make a skirt or a small top. Just have to decide on a pattern. … Sometimes it’s good to be small!
