Hello there! This is Sarah and I am here today with a review of the Telluride Top and Hoodie from Terra’s Treasures. Since it is getting cool here, and I love fall and winter clothes, I was thrilled to try out this top. The name conjures up the image of me sipping hot cocoa in front of a fire at a ski lodge while humming along to the Tim McGraw song (ok, only one of those things actually happened, but I dare you to make this pattern without humming that song the whole time…) This pattern brings all of the comfort and options the name suggests; short sleeves, long sleeves, fitted sleeves, puff sleeves, a high/low hem, a banded hem, a regular hem, tunic length, shirt length, a hood, a faux henley front, a real henley front, and a scoop neckline...whew, I think I managed to get them all in!
I made the tunic length, scoop neck, long fitted sleeve version in a size large. I was a between the medium and large for the bust and waist and between the large and x-large for the hips. I found the fit a little roomy, but very flattering and comfortable. The scoop is a definite scoop (the hubs was a fan of the scoop) but not too low and the tunic length was long enough for my 5’11” height. I really loved the length and actually wore the top grocery shopping layered under a fitted fleece vest right after I took pictures. It was adorbs, if I do say so myself…
I’ll be honest, I wanted to do the henley but figured before I went to the trouble of doing a placket and button holes, I needed to make a test run in a more straightforward version. I should not have worried. The fit and construction were great and this is a pattern I would add to my very small collection of large format* printed patterns (something I splurge on only if I am certain I will make a pattern multiple times.) I need to get cocoa sipping and Tim McGraw singing my way to another one with the Henley option next!
Until next time,
