I purchased one new pattern for KCWC (so far anyway, it’s still early!) – the Round Neck Top from That Darn Kat. Apparently I have a particular fondness for the round neck style – I found four of them in my Flickr stream from the past two years!
Lila has sized out of both of those patterns, so it was time to find a new one. I’d seen this one floating around in various places, and had lots of fun making That Darn Kat’s undies, so I knew it would be a good choice.
This pattern goes from size 2 to 7, and I was pleased with the fit and sizing (I had to do a lot of tweaking with the New Look pattern). I made a size 3 and it’s roomy, as expected, but it fits. I like the length and there’s plenty of room underneath for a long sleeved shirt. And while we did have three glorious days in the 70s this week, it’s still going to be long sleeved shirt weather around here for quite awhile.
Those are yesterday’s Sailboat pants underneath.
And this is what I get when I request a photo shoot immediately upon waking up from nap. Pouty face.
Pattern: Round Neck Top/Dress from That Darn Kat, size 3
