Delilah Pattern Tour

10:01:00 AM,6 Comments



It's been a busy summer full of sun, sand and swimming!  In between the fun I have been sewing up a storm!  Today I am back to show you a great pattern by a designer I just recently was introduced to!

Please give a warm welcome to Delilah!




 The Delilah by Golden Rippy is a wonderful roomy knit top with lots of features!  Rachel, the designer, did a fantastic job with this pattern.  It features:

  • sizes xxs-xl
  • well written easy to follow instructions
  • illustrations
  • 2 sleeve lengths
  • 2 embellishment options
  • printing guide
  • pattern layout




 This pattern is perfect for beginners and goes together in just about an hour if you leave off the embellishments and don't mess up your arm bands and neck bands....haha  I of course was cutting this during nap time, so I was entertaining my 2 little guys at the same time.  I cut my arm and neck bands with the stretch going the wrong way.  UGGHHH.  So if you don't do what I did, you can easily finish this during even the quickest of nap times!





 I adore the roomy fit on this top!  It is not too over sized, but oh so comfy!  I can easily see myself wearing this just around the house, or dressing it up with a statement necklace and earrings for a night out with my girlfriends or on a date with my Hubby!  




 I chose the short banded sleeve and was extremely happy with the end result!  I love the band on the bottom.  And all you ladies who worry about the band being too tight, no worries here!  The band fits perfectly and is really comfortable!  The hip band is great too!  It gives this top just a little extra to help make it a little more than "just a t-shirt".





 I've paired my Delilah with a great neutral skinny belt.  The ease of this shirt allows for lots of room to play with it, especially if you use a fabric that has awesome drape, like this jersey rayon!  Don't worry, you don't need to belt it though!




It looks just as great without the belt!  The size chart was spot on for me.  This is the large, and it's not too tight or too loose.  I love the fit.  If you desire a closer fit, I recommend sizing down.




I decided to leave my top sans embellishments, since I really don't need any extra distractions up on top, if you know what I mean!  haha  I think it's still a great top without it, but really really love the bow!  I think I will try that on my next one.  If you're on the fence about this pattern, I really think you should take the plunge and buy it.  I don't think you will be disappointed.  

Rachel is super awesome and is giving away 2 patterns of your choice to lucky lucky readers!  Enter the giveaway below for your chance to win!  It ends TONIGHT, 8/6/14 at midnight PST!  So hurry up and enter while you can!!  And don't forget to follow Golden Rippy on facebook and on the blog.
