Double Brushed Poly Santa Fe Tops

Santa Fe Top sewn and reviewed by Skirt Fixation

The second pattern I sewed in honor of Hey June June is the Santa Fe Top.  I’ve made quite a few of these tops for a very good reason…they are so comfortable and flattering too.  You can find the sew along in my Instagram stories if you’re looking for help sewing the Santa Fe Top.

I sewed view E, the one with the fun raglan sleeves and underarm detail.  For adjustments, I added 1 inch to the length and raised the neckline by about 1 inch also.

The fabric is double brushed poly from Raspberry Creek Fabrics from their CLUB line.  You can find the floral fabric here, and the striped fabric here.  Even though it’s polyester, this is a perfect pairing for summer because the Santa Fe Top doesn’t conform to the body, so the polyester isn’t hot and sticky to wear.

In the side view, you can see what fun I had matching the stripes both under the arms, and at the top of the shoulder!  It wasn’t too tricky, and I’ve got tips on how to do it in my Instagram story.  This fabric made it quite easy as it gripped itself and didn’t slide around.

I actually ordered 1 yard of each of these fabrics, and with the extra was able to make a whole other Santa Fe Top, but reversed!  It only took a little puzzle piecing, and what’s better than 1 Santa Fe Top?  Two of course!

The Santa Fe Top is breastfeeding friendly.  You just pull it up, of course, but the extra width is nice in keeping everything covered.  And it’s very postpartum friendly too…the looseness around the belly is a way to be so kind to your recovering figure!

I’ve already started sewing the next pattern, the Lucerne Blouse.  It’s Hey June’s newest pattern, and I’m so excited to sew it.
