Jaime's Matinee Wilder Top

We have all been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Warp and Weft collection from Alexia Abegg for Ruby Star Society. Alexia is one of our favorite artists/fabric designers and this is her first foray into designing wovens! This collection is a fun and beautiful selection of yarn dyed woven designs that we cannot get enough of.

Pattern: WIlder Gown, top version
Fabric: Matinee in Dahila
Size Made: Medium
Modifications: none

I've made several Wilder Gowns and I love them. I've been excited to make the top for a while and it was oh so easy! The raglan sleeves combined with neck casing means it comes together without any difficulty. If you dislike working with bias tape - this is the top for you!

The hand of these wovens is soft with a slight drape that lends itself perfectly to garments.

I have to admit that the combo of this design/color fabric mixed with this silhouette was a bit too much when I finished. I decided to change out the tie from the same pink stripe of the top to a simple contrasting ribbon. It toned it down a bit. It is still a lot of look that I'm getting used to.
