I can't seem to have enough white shirts, so it was a natural to make my first Quincy Top in White Cotton Shirting and featuring a Black 18" Zipper. After testing the pattern with a group of wonderful women at the Cloth Merchants in Tulsa, I saw the possibilities of using a myriad of fabrics for this jacket. Plus it fit so many body types, that I knew it was going to be a winner. I like taking the same pattern and using fabrics that take the garment from casual to dressy, so my next one is in a Jacquard Stripe in bold colors. While I am a "one-layer" gal these days, I love the way it can also be layered with a t-shirt or tank and worn as a jacket.
I also love the versatility of this pattern. The top looks great in a shirt weight fabric all the way up to a felled wool, worn as a single layer or that can't-live-without jacket. The collar worn up and high is always a delight for me, but it can be turned down also. I am going to try this in a medium-weight knit next, maybe a wonderful French Terry. And of course we happen to have French Terry in 4 great colors: Pewter, Black, Natural and Juniper.
I love the Quincy, but I'm more into mixing & matching pieces. So I decided to wear the top & pants separately in 2 out of 3 outfits. I also love jackets, but rarely zip or button up the front. I just want to throw it on and run out the door. The Quincy Pants are perfect this time of year. I love this lightweight cotton pair, hem rolled up with a simple tank & vest. Layering is still possible in the summer heat with a tank & vest.
Love this Vest? Another great pattern download coming your way soon-stay tuned!!!
