Handmade Wardrobe – Joni Top

I was lucky enough to get to test this fab pattern for my IG buddy Leanne Fanny. The Joni has a dress and top version, I tested the top version in a size 14 (to fit my big bangers in). I did have to take the side seams in a little extra but it fit me perfectly across the bust.

This is the first pattern Leanne has released, you can find it here, in her Etsy shop. I really like the shape of the neckline on the Joni and love that the back is the same shape.

The pattern is great for beginners as there are plenty of photos and comprehensive instructions to follow. The dress version has an elasticated waist which looks cute, but I haven’t had a chance to make it yet.

I had fun picking fabric for this top. I had originally planned on using the leftover blue floral print from my Myrtle dress but I didn’t have quite enough. Instead, off I trotted to Fabricland where the classic cars caught my eye. Lucky for me they had a plain lilac polycotton in the same shade as the cars in the print and exactly the same weight. A match made in heaven don’t you think?

Before I go I just want to say sorry for the scary stare in these photos, I don’t know what happened? Think I lost the ability to smile. Seriously what was I doing??
