George + Ginger just updated the GGVNeck and it's on sale! The pattern now has an extended size range. This pattern is one of the $5 staple patterns, but is currently on sale for $3.75 through the end of September. I have no idea where the month of August, much less September went. I feel like I blinked and whole weeks have flashed by. I made my GGVNeck the first week of September. I even posted a fit pic on Instagram prior to hemming it. I hemmed it maybe a week later and I finally realized yesterday that I needed to photograph it!
Well, photos were not happening yesterday. Yesterday I did not want to get up. I didn't sleep well because one of our cats, Garfield, wanted to wake up at 3 am and make all kinds of noise. Before I knew it my husbands alarm was going off. He had to travel for work and was getting up earlier than usual. I crawled out of bed as he was leaving and realized it was too late for a shower before starting work.
So, today I took a shower and made a point to take these photos. I absolutely love the GGVNeck. It's a super low and wide v-neck top with a slightly fitted body. Since fall is approaching, I decided to make this one with a ribbed sweater knit. I only had a little over a yard of fabric and it was just enough for this top.
Nothing exciting about the back. The back hem is even, I just somehow managed to get the center back hem to flip up inside.
I have visions of myself wearing this top with a scarf and a cardigan with skinny jeans and tall boots - if I can ever find a pair that will fit me.
The GGVNeck only has short sleeves, but it wouldn't be hard to extend them into 3/4 or long sleeves. I might have to do that for a few layering tops as the weather cools down.
If you go to the George + Ginger site to grab the GGVNeck, be sure to also add the 40K Sway Top to your cart. It's the newest free pattern and I cannot wait to make one!
