Like pretty much everyone else, I really needed to make this top. Because I love Rachel Comey. And I love those crazy $3 Vogue sales. Originally, I had intended for this to be a wearable muslin, but I like it just fine. You might recognize the fabric from this dress (which I also still wear a lot). The fabric I had slated for the pattern probably wouldn't have suited it anyway. You really need to work with something light here.

At so many points while putting this together, I was "whyyyyy" and "there doesn't need to be a seam here" and "this is taking so long for such a simple top." But I persisted despite my reservations, and it turns out I really do like this top.

And the moral of the story is... blah blah blah we all knew Rachel Comey is amazing.

I wanted to kill myself when I made this - the construction is bananas (which I've felt sewing one of her dresses too). I was not super thrilled with the results but that is more the result of my relative inexperiance at the time - this looks great on you though - love the print!
