La joueuse, MLM Patrons

Pattern : La joueuse, MLM Patrons
Size : XS
Fabric : cotton voile
 

I’m really late in presenting this latest sewing project, a very nice top called ‘La joueuse’, to you; I was actually supposed to release it on my blog a month ago at the same time as the other pattern tester, but I had some trouble printing it in PDF. This top is the last of MLM patrons and is available only as a PDF. Be careful if you are living in North America as this pattern is printable only in A4 size which was the main issue for me. Marisa was nice enough to send it to me printed but sadly the postage took quite a while, perhaps because French and Canadian postal services are running slower than usual during summer. Anyway, I finally did it and waited for some nice weather to take pictures of it! Have you seen those beautiful autumn colours in the trees? And it’s just the start!

This top is quite simple, perhaps an ideal one for beginners, but has very nice details that makes it so cute. A “V” neck and back, a lining that you can see, and very cute sleeves so it’s perfect to wear during this summer-autumn transition. In the original model, normally the front is split in half and you can add piping in the middle of the front parts. I decided to cut my front on fold to have only one piece, making it simpler and I like it this way! I think you are starting to know that I love bows right … So it was only natural that I had to put one on the back! This came from Little Fabrics, Cynthia nicely added it to my last order and I love it!

As some of the testers have said before, Marisa took into consideration all the remarks that have been given about this top and she changed a few things to make it perfect. Even if I couldn’t give her my opinion on this one, I followed all the processes of it anyway and I know the time it took for her to produce the best piece of work. I guess that is all we expect when we buy a pattern right! The instructions appeared clear in my opinion, and the difficult steps were well explained. I haven’t lined the sleeves but I think I should have considering how transparent my fabric actually is. I was afraid that this top would fall on my shoulders quite a lot but it actually doesn’t really.

Regarding the fabric, it is a cotton voile that I bought during my summer holidays from Tissu Myrtilles in Quimper (France). It sadly looks quite white or light blue in the pictures but it actually has very thin stripes. This is exactly the type of fabric impossible to photograph right! I’ve chosen another cotton voile for the lining but this time in white. I feel like both fabrics mix really well together. So what do you think? Have a nice start to the week!

    Simple mais efficace. Personnellement je n’ai pas eu de coup de cœur pour ce patron mais il constitue, je l’avoue, un bon basique un peu plus raffiné et travaillé. Sur l’une des photos on voit bien le détail des petites rayures de ton tissu. D’ailleurs ton choix tissu/coloris me plaît bien, ça reste dans l’esprit du top, sobre et simple.
    Des bises !

    Il est vraiment très joli.. Dommage que ce tissus ne se laisse pas photographier ! Je me demandais le métrage que tu as du utiliser pour un XS? J’ai un voile de coton rouge de 50 cm et je ne sais qu’en faire mais j’imagine bien un Joueuse dedans mais 50 cm, c’est petit

    Superbe
    je n’ose pas commander des patrons PDF, ça me semble trop compliqué les assemblages
    bonne journée
