Kastrup Top Musings

Kastrup Top Front ViewThe Kastrup top from How To Do Fashion is a recent stumble upon for me from the gals over at We Sew Retro.  Had to have the pattern.

As it turns out this pattern comes only in pdf form.  Not my fave.  Plus, I was not in a hurry so if given the choice I would have preferred tissue.  So, check it, I paid $12.50 for the privilege of downloading the pattern.  Since we do not have proper set up at home I had to print this baby out at the local library.  I paid a whopping $8.50 (.25/page) and now I have to take precious time cutting and taping paper together.  $21.00 for a stupid pattern.  I know it sounds like I am complaining.  Well, I guess I am, but I do think the top is kinda cute.

Look at the little cap sleeve!  It takes minimal fabric.  Oh, and the pattern calls for all manner of wovens.  I just knew it was knit so imagine my delight when I found out it wasn’t.

I am curious how these size “J” cups will look in this cute little top.  I’m bold enough to find out and I believe there is something in my stash that I could use as a toile.  Yippee!  If all turns out well I will be making several of these babies.  They look so comfy.  As always, stay tuned for a Lyrically styled version.

What do you think?

Cheers,

  1. I hate downloaded patterns too. They never seem to line up quite right–user/printer error perhaps. I do like the pattern though and speaking from my own experience, princess seams and raglan sleeves work well for full busts.
