By Hand London Polly Top

by Hannah

This blouse if from By Hand London. I thought to give them a try before purchasing a pattern. They offer a free pattern called the Polly top. It came together in an evening and directions and illustrations were clear and concise! It’s a color block blouse but I chose to use all one fabric. One thing I’ll mention that will help you when you’re using their patterns. When you’re in between sizes, choose smaller. I chose to make an XS and it’s too big for me, so these patterns run large. If you want to make the Polly top, be sure to use a fabric thathas drape. I used a Nani Iro brushed cotton and it definitely contributes to the large feeling of the XS.
