Triangle Love Top

full view front

I had been wanting to make this triangle cutout version of the Datura Blouse from Deer & Doe, but wanted to be sure to find the perfect fabric to compliment the design. Enter Go-Go London from the Carnaby Street collection by Pat Bravo! I opted for the Powdery colorway, but the Lustrous is lovely too. I paired it with a minty cotton voile and found the most adorable little cat-face buttons for the back.

The pattern went together relatively quickly – I like that the top portion is self-lined. The top is loose enough that the buttons need not actually be functional, but I did include button holes and open them up. Although the pattern is labeled as advanced, it shouldn’t deter less experienced sewists from attempting it. The collarless or peter-pan collar versions would be considerably less tricky than the one with triangle cutouts.
