Rachel Top


There’s been a bit of a blogging hiatus again! Ramadan was busy and then we had the usual end of term madness. You may have seen some of my makes over on Instagram but I will try and catch up here as I’ve made quite a few new things recently that I want to share.


This is the Rachel top by See Kate Sew. I really liked the shape of the sleeves and the exposed zip at the back.


Ruffled sleeves are a big trend this summer and they are everywhere at the moment! It was actually very easy to add the ruffle.


I added a pink exposed zip which pops against the dark blue Art Gallery print fabric. This is a cotton voile from the Katarina Roccella collection.


I wore it with some pink Biden Richmond trousers and an Inayah collection sleeveless crepe jacket. I also have quite a lot of aqua in my wardrobe so it coordinates well with other items. It is a little short for my preference and has a bit of a maternity look to it because of the gathers above the bust so I’m not sure I’ll make it again but I learned a lot doing this project and will use the skills again.

    Cute top! I like the statement of sleeves. As you said, ruffle sleeves are really a big trend in this summer. I like ruffles, they add sweet and lovely sense of this top.
