The top in question is another Tessuti Alexa. This version is made from some lovely black quilted knit that I picked up at Cotura Fashions at the end of winter sale a couple of months back. I love this fabric but resisted making it up until I could decide what I really wanted to do with it. I briefly considered some kind of jacket but given my current practical sewing streak I decided to make a top which I knew would get much more wear. I paired the fabric with a piece of ponti that I had picked up at the op shop a couple of years ago now. I didn't change anything about the pattern and whipped the entire top up within an hour. I was modelling it when Courteney arrived home and she declared she would wear it (ultimate praise indeed from my daughter), so I set about making version two, this time with long sleeves. We now have just about identical matching tops and no, we won't be wearing them out together!
