Otttobre 5-2011-11 Romantic Notes, another strangely named but lovely top from Ottobre. This one has been reviewed a couple of times but probably deserves more attention that it has recieved.
This is made up in a rayon purchased from Knitwit probably from about a year ago, but I cannot find it in their collections. It was bought at a roadshow so may be from a previous collection.
It has lovely blues, greys and browns in the print. The grey is not a great colour for me but I am hoping the blue and brown will win out and I will be able to coordinate this top with some browns I have planned for my winter wardrobe.
The obligatory back shot. I have made no alterations to this pattern.
It does not show in the photos above, but there is quite a bit of detail in this top. The collar has pleats ...
which lead around to the pleats at the front...
The collar seems to sit better on Diana than it does on me. I hadn't noticed that before these photos. I will have to check this out more carefully next time I wear it. However the collar sits on me, very similarly to the one pictured on the model in the magazine, so maybe I can just better adjust it on Diana (and she doesn't move about).
This is how I see me wearing it this winter, but with a brown cardi and perhaps a nice chunky necklace or colourful scarf...
Slowly catching up with my posting... better get back to sewing... Ciao kittens!
