More of our NEW Kate Top – ideas and inspiration
Here the Kate Top pattern is made up in vintage washed Bedford Black linen with contrasting neckline and armhole bindings in Lulu Natural. To complete the top, a running stitch in natural coloured topstitch thread was applied on top of the stitched down hemline and side splits.
hemline and side splits was sewn using a longer stitch length on the
sewing machine (stitch length 3.5 or 4). Using topstitch thread in a contrast natural colour, I hand sewed by picking up every second
stitch. It gives a really simple, lovely and effective finish and highlights the detailing
around the hemline and side splits.
