Fabric: Speckle Cotton Jersey from Robert Kaufman in Natural

I’m finally catching up on some old FOs!
I adore the Ebony Dress/Tee pattern and this is the first of three of them that I’m going to share with you this month. A few months before making this I had made a winter version and I loved it so much that I wanted to make it a core part of my spring/summer wardrobe. I love this top and wear it a ton, I love how the speckles add some texture and color to a staple.
I used view A for this top, opting for the jewel neckline and shortening the sleeves. The sleeves on my dress are a bit snug so I added 1/4″ on each side and these fit more nicely. The other fitting change I made was to bring in the shoulders 1/4″ to get them to fit on my shoulder point. This top is longer than the view B crop, but shorter than a tunic. I really love how it just grazes the top of my low-rise jeans.
Stay tuned next week for my next Ebony adventure – a tunic! Do you have a pattern you’ve made a bunch of variations of? I’d love to hear about your tried and trues!
