This is my second Staley Top by Elbe Textiles
I’ve just had to part with my first, made back in 2020, as it became too bobbly.
It was a very quick sew which was a nice change!
The Staley Top comes with two patterns, perfect for layering together.
View A is a cropped pullover, featuring a split hem detail that is slightly longer at the back. View B is a semi fitted t-shirt with a scooped neckline and a curved hem.
I just made up the top pullover this time as I wanted something to layer over my recent light weight shirts but it also looks great by itself.
There’s also 2 cup size options B cup and a combined C/D cup. I made up a size C in the B cup.
I used a viscose knit from My Fabrics, which had been sitting in my stash since October 2021 and sadly is no longer available.
I made the same change to the pullover as I made previously.
I made it up in accordance with the pattern but made the bottom band piece as wide as the width of the top at the base.
The pattern has a shorter width front band, designed to pull up and gather the bottom of the front panel, but I prefer it laying flat.
I also added a couple of inches to the bottom band depth too, to make it a little less cropped.
All made up on my overlocker.
I love the shape of the neck line of the pullover to wear a with a shirt like this.
Love, Lucie xx
