Pinup girl stripe Trifecta Top FTW!

While browsing Instagram, I came across a picture posted by Pinup Girl Clothing that made me stop in my tracks!

After seeing this top with the red pants, I knew I wanted to make a stripey top and what better time than now to try Kitschy Coo’s Trifecta Top pattern. I made the size 3 with no alterations. Only thing I didn’t follow was the sleeve length. There’s a cut line if you’re doing the cap sleeves with arm bands and a line lower for hemming the sleeve. I cut at the hemming line but still added the arm bands.

Once I started cutting, it was a bit late, and I wasn’t about to start matching stripes on a raglan…so, really, my top isn’t an exact copy as you’ll see but I totally got inspired by PUG.

What’s on the ground that I keep looking at? Geez, Breton! Apparently it’s funny so I’m going to guess: squirrel?

The jerseys I used for this top are so super soft they make me want to curl up inside and take a nap. Sorry, I don’t remember where I got the stripe. It might have been from The French Seam here in town- which would make sense because it’s seriously delectable. The black rayon jersey is from Fabric Mart.

Pants are from Banana Republic.

Lip pretty is from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. A lip stain called Stalker. Steph from Cake Patterns got me hooked on this brand. It’s amazing, feels great, doesn’t cake and I don’t have to reapply even during work.

What do you think? Should I make another Trifecta with mesh? #MeshQueen
