Striped Atrax

Am I filling my wardrobe with Atrax? Am I filling my wardrobe with this stripe? Yes. I have a Hyde T-Shirt in this exact fabric and since the Atrax Top uses so little fabric I had enough left to make a matching Atrax and I’ve still got more leftover (maybe a second Atrax where I successfully manage to pattern match)!

Details: I made a straight Size E, which matches up to my full-bust measurement and I made no adjustments.

Fabric: I’m not sure exactly how much fabric I used because I was working with a misshapen scrap. This fabric probably played the nicest, especially compared to my ribbed Atrax which was a jerk fabric.

I do love the casual look of this top, and I’ll get a lot of wear from it when summer comes round, especially because it’s Banksia Bralette friendly! I do think the Atrax particularly shines as an elevated top though, so I’ve got one last combo planned which is a creamy ponte Atrax paired with pleated rust-coloured tencel Glebe Pants… and maybe a new cropped Shoalhaven Shacket to top it off!
