This fabric, a cotton voile, was mine as soon as I saw it! I loved the design with the beautiful  birds, the French words and the vintage postmarks.

As the weather is starting to get cooler, a top with longer sleeves seemed in order. The body of the top (a Kwik Sew pattern) is lined and the roll collar (a real favourite of mine) has made another appearance above a pleated neckline. The sleeves (from a Vogue pattern) are unlined and the fullness at the bottom edges is pleated into a narrow binding.

The colours in the top look great with denim. I can also visualise this top with some mustard or black jeans!
