You know I’m on a major plaid kick. These plaid Lucy tops from Shwin Designs are pure perfection!
My lil Payton got hers before Christmas and I could hardly wait to make my own!
I used plaid flannel from Joann’s for my outer and lined it with a cozy cream microfleece. We took these shots in freezing temps and we’ve done some award worthy acting to hide our shivering 😉
The top features a crossover front with buttons at the shoulders. It’s fully lined so you can make it reversible!
I added a fun little leather detail to the hem of mine that gives it a little more ready-to-wear vibe.
Payton’s is made out of Joann’s flannel and a light chambray from LA. I added the extra buttons to hers to make hers reversible (I didn’t add the extra buttons to mine because I don’t forsee me wearing the fleece on the outside).
The fit on her is spot on and so, so cute!
I made us both size 6’s. I’m sad it only goes to 6 in girls. I’ll be adding length and tweaking the pattern so I can make many more of these for my girls in the future!
The ladies version features bust darts that add to the flattering fit. I added two inches to my length (per pattern instructions) since I am 5’7″.
The Ladies pattern offers the suggestion of wearing it open or even adding a button at the waist to wear the collar down while bringing in the waist.
I love this fall/winter version but I’m also excited to make a flowy light version for spring too.
I am a Brand Ambassador for Shwin and have been provided the patterns for free but my thoughts and opinions are purely my own. I have a true love of all things Shwin!
