I got the idea of this top from my regular StitchFix box this last week. (More on that later.) As soon as I saw this top out of the box, I remembered this fabric and knew it was going to be mine. Now I know this lady, Susanne C., my stylist, is in my head, or following my Periscopes or my instagram or something. I suspect this, because she sent me exactly the things I had been talking about on my YouTube channel or other social media. SMH...this internet is really "mmmmmm....I can't say."
Of course you know me, duplicate the heck out of that top.....I copied the front section of the original and then transferred the details to the back of the renfrew and used the neckline of their top, but made the ratio of neck to band based off the refrew to ensure the fit was spot on. The sleeves are my renfrew sleeves as well as all the upper body, notwithstanding the neckline...as I said, I made that smaller to match the StitchFix version. See the video here for more details on that shipment.
I enjoyed making this top, and the fact that it was chosen by a stranger....is even more unsettling. Wow. Check out those boyfriend jeans. I have never even tried on a pair of those at the store. I just don't like shopping too much y'all. So when I do go shopping I stick to what I know, which is not very good. Its just a limitation I have. Now I understand why there are stylist and wardrobe planners out there to help.
Take care and stay tuned for more to come....I'm always working to bring you fun things to look at, consider and talk about. Please subscribe via email at the top for faster updates when I post. Next up....."Stitch Fix Video."
