Stylearc Maddison Top


I bought Stylearc Maddison shortly after it was released.  To test it out I decided to use some leftover stash fabric.  This fabric is a knit that I sourced from Cotura Fashions.  It is a lovely weight and I will be sorry when it is all gone.


I ordered a size 8 pattern but this pattern is designed to be quite a generous fit so I did end up running it in under the arms from memory a couple of centimetres.



I am really pleased with my completed top.  I don't actually own many tee shirts and after work and on weekends they are my weekend staples.  This tee will be a useful addition to my autumn casual wardrobe.

  1. Lucky to find the coordinating stripey knits which really gives your top extra style points. I have now seen two great versions of this pattern ( thornberry ) .

    1. I have seen Lara's as well and it inspired me to get mine made. The matching stripes were a lucky find.

    1. I took a bit of a risk with the stripes. Normally I would have used the large ones across the front and the narrow ones on the sleeves.

    1. The stripes are a little different to what I would normally do but I like it done this way now.

  6. I'm loving Stylearc designs at the moment. Great use of stripes and wonderful scenery. Do NZ Tourism have you on commission?
