U 2 Can Knock This Off

After you’ve been sewing for a while, you start to notice patterns that are almost dead ringers for RTW, and vice versa. So with that in mind, BEHOLD:

The top on the left is from a brand new Anthropologie catalog; the top on the right is from the latest issue of Patrones, a Spanish sewing & fashion magazine that Diva Els sent to me. This pattern is bound into the magaazine and you can trace it off.

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?



  1. What a gorgeous summer top! Who designed the one in Patrones? May I whine yet again about it being too expensive to subscribe to Patrones and Knip Mode? Wah.

  2. I have that issue of Patrones – I bought it for that top pattern! It’s designed by Mango. I just grab them off ebay when they come up. I love your ladies blogs, I found them from Patternreview!
