Pattern: Lottie Top by Christine Haynes
Fabric: Warp Weft Wovens Line "Flicker" in Lilac, by Alexia Abegg for Ruby Star Society
Size Made: 20
I’ve shocked myself recently by being obsessed with all types of lavender and lilac purples. Purples that straddle the line between pink, or grey. I’m not a purple person. I am the opposite of a purple person, but I can’t enough of these shades this season! Who am I anymore?
This lilac and yellow swiss dot in Warp and Weft, Alexia Abegg’s new line of woven fabrics is the perfect shade of purple/pink pink/purple that I’m craving and I love it so much. The cotton has a lovely soft hand that is perfect for spring and summer garments!
I was intrigued to try the newly re-released Lottie Pattern by Christine Haynes because it seems so similar in shape and function to the Wiksten Shift dress and top- but it has a bust dart!
The fit is less boxy and quite a bit longer than the Wiksten top- which for me is a little problematic because I have a short torso and also prefer a more cropped fit! So even though I did shorten this top it is still a little long for my taste. I do love the side vents, and I’m looking forward to trying out the dress-both the long and short versions!
