My friend Jenna gave me some of her old patterns and this Tilly and the Buttons Agnes top was among those. I have wanted to make this top for a while since I love the ruched sleeves. I found this very nice and drapey viscose jersey fabric from the remnant bin and it was just perfect for this project. Previously, I have had problems with sizing what comes to the jersey tops. The cotton tops often become too small and the viscose ones too big. This is, of course, due to the fact that the viscose jersey stretches a lot more than a cotton jersey. This time I was determined…

I love the frilly detail at the collar and I found just a perfect Atelier Brunette viscose fabric from Salapakka, Helsinki. Saraste pattern comes in three versions: a long-sleeved blouse, a shirt dress and a sleeveless top. The sizing goes from 1 to 9.
