Since making it last month, my striped Alice Top has been on a high and heavy rotation. You know that go-to wardrobe staple that is your immediate, feel good and comfortable one? Yeah, that's my Alice. And so I had to sew another one, of course. In (mostly) black, of course.
I sewed six 35cm lengths together and blockfused the back with a lightweight interfacing. I also staystiched the edges immediately after cutting out my pattern piece to prevent fraying. The black linen I used is our Hanky Black Jin. As with my first version, I chose not to interface the armhole bands so that they stay all nice and linen-y soft.
While we're on this pattern, I went away with some girlfriends on the weekend for some fine company and a little sewing as well. We brought some Alice love along with us too and here's my mate Manda's gorgeous white version made up in our cotton/viscose Gallen Pattern Weave...
Ah, Alice...you're a keeper.
