After my last post, I decided that enough was enough, and I just needed a quick pick me up project to rev up my mojo.
Of course, I made a Trifecta Top. I sewed it in this fun Tokidoki style jersey from Nature's Fabrics. They actually still had a few yards left as of this post. You can find it here.
From the back, you can see the cool print a little better. There are Asian looking pinup style faces, interspersed with cartoon-y skulls with an overall camouflage appearance. The base fabric is a heathered grey, and the print is several shapes of pink, ranging from a deep burgundy to to a pale cotton candy shade.
I decided to do the sleeves, sleeve bands and neckband in black rayon lycra jersey from FabricMart. It is so soft and I love the way it makes the pink pop.
For this version of the Trifecta Top, I decided to cut the cap length sleeve and use my shaped hemline. I think one of the mojo blockers I'm trying to get around is the change in seasons. The weather has been ridiculously unpredicatable - swinging from the 20s in the morning to the 60s by afternoon. Sewing for Winter seems silly, but I'm not sure I'm ready to start sewing for Spring.
I think this is a good start though. A simple but fun tee, perfect for my actual life.
Now, what to do next? Jeans are nice and trans-seasonal, and I always seem to need more of those. Of course, there is this houndstooth ponte knit that wants to become a moto jacket... We'll see what speaks louder to me.
