Style Arc Patterns are new at Minerva. They are for the experienced sewer due to the scant instructions however the final garment has a great everyday feel. The whole collection is very wearable for all shapes and sizes too which I think is very important.
The Annika Top Pattern is made in two parts in two different fabrics. I chose a stretch ponte roma for the top and a co-ordinating georgette for the bottom which is a challenging fabric to work with but you could use a light cotton lawn to make it easier.
These are the full instructions so you need to have sewn a few clothes in order to glide your way through them.
One of my craft resolutions for 2018 is to use more of my sewing machine feet so I had a go with my rolled hem foot to finish the chiffon. It is good on a straight edge but needs a little more practise on my behalf for curves where the fabric sometimes slips away from the needle.
Even when the weather picks up in the UK there are still days where a light sweatshirt is ideal so I am looking forward to wearing this right now.
Job done! A really wearable staple garment in my favourite colour green. Thanks Minerva.
