Katherine Tilton's new top

I am taking a break this week from my "summer skirts and dresses" series to show the new top by Katherine Tilton for Butterick. It just came out and I wanted it so much I didn't even wait for it to be on sale. I just love all the designs by Katherine and her sister Marcy who designs for Vogue.

This pattern has so much potential for different looks. I went with coordinating stripes I had in my collection and made version A. I cut out my usual XL size with the only changes being making it 3 inches longer. It went together quickly and I love the look and feel.

The pants are Vogue 9114 which I showed the skirt for in my last post...really love these too....loose without looking "baggish". Next week I will be getting back to "skirted items"!

  2. I love this outfit on you. I have the top pattern and can't wait to make it--I didn't think about stripes but your version looks better than the picture on the pattern envelope. Nice!

  8. Very very cute, and happy to be reading your blog again! You just don't look like an XL person to me, but I'll take your word for it. Thanks for the inspiration...
