Welcome to my blog! I created ‘The Ravel Out’ to capture my makes while I unravel my sewing ideas, one stitch at a time.

Ravel (out)


  1. unravel; untangle.

  2. undo (twisted, knitted, or woven threads).

The Aster Top

This was my first time trying out a pattern by Colette Patterns and it definitely won't be my last. This pattern gave me the neatest seams and finish I have ever had on any clothing I have made in the last couple of years. I could literally wear it inside out. DSC_0834

First of all, the packaging of the pattern is to die for and the instructions are very well written. Colette patterns also has step-by-step tutorials on their blog to make it even easier to make this top.


I chose a classic gingham fabric for this project and could not be happier with the results. I have been searching for a great top pattern to help me build and diversify my wardrobe and I think I found the one.
