I started with the rib trims and found a fabric that I thought looked really good with them. I love the slight color contrast of the rib trims with the fabric and I think it makes this garment really interesting. Putting this top together was pretty easy since it's a simple silhouette.
This shirt really just needs some bust darts, raglan sleeves and the trim to finish the neckline, bottom and sleeves to create a simple but classic look. The materials were a dream to work with. I have decided to embrace the linen wrinkle, so I don't even press this top before wearing it! Even though it's late in the season, I love wearing this piece as the perfect fall top.
I love all things Merchant & Mills! The minimalist silhouettes and beautiful fabrics really speak to me. They are usually my favorite patterns and fabrics. And they just came out with some really beautiful sewing books that I had to have as well!
