Workhorse Patterns Ione Top

This is a repost of content previously published on my prior blog. Disclaimer: I know Becky Jo who owns Workhorse patterns, though all the opinions here are my own!

I am lucky enough to have a friend who is making her own patterns (it’s the dream!) and this is her first – the Ione Top:

I made version 2, which is the v-neck version. I left off the sleeve cuffs, though might go add them later.

I love the curve of the hem:

I would also like to call out that this top goes up to a size 32 (US).  That’s bloody brilliant.

All the deets:

Pattern: Workhorse Patterns Ione Top (Version 2)

Size: 18 

  • Cut a straight 18
  • Added 2″ length (all at lengthen/shorten line)
  • I made the v-neck slightly wider and slightly deeper (about 3/4″ removed all the way around the neckline)

Fabric used: Printed silk from Tessuti Fabrics

Like it?  Wearing it?  YES and YES!  I wore it work today and it is comfortable and flattering and just the right sort of vibe for my work.  I will more than likely make another 🙂

Notes for next time:  Just to remember to make the straight 18 – I cut the 20 graded to an 18 for the test version and I prefer the result of this version
