Garamond Top


I am so in love with this make. This Garamond top was released at the end of Summer 2017 and I managed to make it for winter, totally inappropriate. But all the best so I can make a bunch of them for next summer.It was a joy to make once I decided to put fastener snaps instead of buttons.

This hasn´t been my last or only make of the Autumn-Winter, but definitely my favorite one.

The Pattern: Garamond Top from Friday Pattern Company

The fabric: gifted to me, so unknown origin


Friday Pattern Co are based in the US and have only a few patterns. I discovered them via Instagram and there are some nice pieces I would like to make. The instructions are more or less clear.

As this is a shirt made with jersey fabric all my doubts were related to this hybridisation. I had doubts about whether to use knit interfacing or normal woven interfacing. I also hesitated with the visible topstitching of the back facing and went for straight stitch as if for woven.The instructions are not so specific about these little things, and for us amateur self-taught sewers there are never too many instructions.

I tried to make buttonholes on it but failed miserably and I officially hate anything with buttons. So I went for snaps instead and that was a relief.

Why I love this pattern?

  • It is very wearable, a shirt with the feel of a t-shirt
  • It is quick to make
  • It takes 1m of fabric only!
  • It has only a few pattern pieces
  • It is cute
  • It is perfect for all the infantile motif knits that I have hoarded over the years

I will definitely make more of these.

It was very windy when I took my photos in Almeria, Spain. I will have to pack this top when I go back to the UK and won´t be able to use it for a few months. Unless I move back to Spain…

PS: I have lots more me mades I haven’t been able to blog about




Me encanta mi Top Garamond de Friday Pattern Company. Aunque es una prenda para verano este ha sido me Proyecto favoritos de este Ontono -Invierno. Me lo he podido poner estas navidades porque he ido a Almeria, por lo de vuelve a casa por Navidad como-el-Alemendro.

La tela no tengo ni idea de dónde sale la tela ya que es in regalo de mi única amiga costurera.

Y por qué me gusta este patron?

  • es rápido de hacer
  • usa poca tela
  • es una camisa para cuando te da pereza llevar/planchar camisa
  • es perfecto para usar tantas telas de motivos infantiles que te compras por internet

Seguro que repito. Las fotos son tomadas en Garrucha con el viento de la tormenta Bruno.

PS: tengo muchos más proyectos sobre los que no he hablado y creo que se quedarán para 2018
