Lucy’s for two


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.


You can pick up the girls Lucy here and the Ladies version here.

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!
