[Note] Hello - this is an old post that I’ve moved over from my Tumblr. I’ve just copied the words and pictures across.
Now for something a little more refined after the tropical trouser situation in the previous post. This is the Camber Top from Merchant and Mills. It’s not at all obvious from any of these photographs, but I love it!
I cut a size 12, which is smaller than I’d normally cut, but Merchant and Mills patterns have a lot of ease so I figured it would be fine. It fits me ok around the torso but I think I’d prefer a bit more room in the shoulders. Next time I make this pattern I’ll lengthen the shoulder seams I think.
The material is this criss-cross handloom cotton, also from Merchant and Mills. I think it’s quite lovely. I’m not normally someone who can wear white without immediately spilling something on myself, so this is a bold and unprecedented sartorial move for me. Yeah you heard me.
