For some reason I only want to sew tops. A recent one is Vogue 8906, a very easy pattern for a loose fitting top with neck line variations and front and back pleats. I made view C with the front opening, but used the slightly shorter sleeve length of view B. I shopped my stash and used a teal colored linen/cotton blend, printed with Italian phrases in different fonts.

I have no recollection of when I purchased this fabric, and I was curious what the Italian phrases said. Typing one of phrases in a translator wasn’t very enlightening. References to Peter and the Nazarenes made me think they were related to the bible, but the mention of the Pope ruled that out. A Google search on one of the phrases turned up as an exact match to lines in Dante’s Divine Comedy, an epic poem describing his travels through Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven. Interesting, well at least I know, if someone should ask what is written on my blouse.
