Print top - KS 2694

The night before our Easter lunch I read the weather was going to be good (25celsius) so eventhough we're about to go into the colder months, I wanted to wear my RTW white jeans just one more time.
I had traced out this top pattern for Mum in a large but I decided to do a small in view B for myself, while I had the pattern out. The print does repeat but I bought so much of it I decided to cut and sew this quickly to check the fit. 
The centre back is normally cut on the fold but because of my sway back, I cut it down the centre back and took 2.5 cm out of the centre back at the waist. This pattern had previously had the roll shoulder adjustment so using the overlocker and Cover Pro I was able to get this pattern to work out. I've used Seams great on the shoulder seams.
The print is actually red and dark blue. At night I couldn't see the blue because it looked black. I think this fabric was a Spotlight special. Today it's raining buckets so my timing for this top was perfect.

Very nice print. It's got a bit of a retro feel, so it fits with all the other retro garments you've sewn lately.

A very eye catching outfit - looks really nice. Why can I never find knits as nice as this at Spotlight ? I have made KS 2694 but I think it is time for another - a timeless design.

You have been busy, busy on the sewing machine. I just caught up on all of your posts and am impressed with the prolific outpouring of sewing in the last few weeks!
Good luck in the Vintage Dress competition - I love your dress!

A really cute top, the print is lovely and it looks fabulous with your white jeans. Which, by the way, are absolutely beautiful!

I love the bold print in this top, and it looks so chic with the white jeans!

What a spiffy-looking outfit -- somehow it looks both fresh and retro, all at once. That's a very nice fit on the top,too.
