This is my third and final (for now) Arenal top by Itch to Stitch. You can see my other two Arenal tops here. It has taken me a long time to post these photos because there is some seriously weird lighting go on, and I planned to take better photos. It hasn't happened in the past month, though, so I am just going with these. Seriously, though, how is it both overcast and too sunny?
I used the 3/4 sleeves and standard hem on this version. The knit fabric is from Pennie Fabrics in Sarasota and is very lightweight and drapey. I have quite a bit more, and I'm not sure what to make with it. Suggestions? I am thinking of checking if I have enough for the dress pattern that I used to make my red tunic.
For this version, I used a little lavender lace I have had in my stash for eons. I wanted to use the scalloped hem edge, but I didn't want to worry about bra strap show-through, so I just layered it on top of the standard tee. For the knit fabric, I overlapped the front pattern piece and the front yoke pattern piece (the shoulder contrast) to make one whole front up to the shoulder. Then, I used the yoke piece to cut my lace. I just layered the lace on top of the knit fabric and constructed this as a regular tee. Super simple, and it is a fun extra detail.
