I’m sat here drinking a (large) glass of Chablis dreaming about a sunny holiday on the South Coast of France. In reality I will wake up tomorrow to the chance of snow (and maybe a headache) on the south cost of England. Oh well at least I can keep my French mood going finishing my new Breton top. I am making Tilly and the Buttons Coco pattern with a black and white striped jersey, I will post about this at a later date when I have finished it and taken photos.

Before I started I took a peek at some of the other Breton tops, or stripey T shirts that sewing bloggers had been making. There are loads of them, as you would expect Tilly does it in a expert fashion, but I also love Jane’s nautical style and Winnie’s many versions. Zoe also has made a great version of her Delores pattern in a red and white stripe.

I have gathered some of them together in a Pinterest board for you to have a look at…

Feeling inspired? If so here are my top fabric and patterns picks….
