I’m super excited to share that I’m a pattern tester for the new Bellevue top – coming soon from Kimberly at Straight Stitch Designs. It’s my first time as a pattern tester. Although I admit I haven’t made any of her other patterns yet, I love how all of her tops are simple with a twist. The Bellevue top is right along those same lines.
It’s the first top I’ve sewn with raglan sleeves, so that’s fun on its own, but with the fabric-mixing and shirt tail hem, I feel like there are endless possibilities. I’ve made one version so far and cut fabric for two more, but the ideas abound for this one…

NEUTRALS WITH A TWIST
I’ll be sharing my test creations after the pattern comes out. I’m so excited to see what everyone else comes up with!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Until next time,
