Although I grew up in LA, I have never really been a summer person for some reason. I think it’s because I do not do well in the heat, in fact I don’t do well in almost any temperature, i’m always either too cold or too hot. However, recently I have been trying to warm up to the idea of summer (see what I did there?). Honestly it is probably because of the fashion aspect of it, I’m trying to learn how to dress according to season, which is kind of difficult sometimes especially when it comes to summer.
There is so much to take into consideration when it comes to summer, you can be melting and you still aren’t allowed to walk around topless like guys can. You need to find the fine line between not dying and not being too revealing, because you know heaven forbid people see a human body and get all judgmental and offended.
Personally I find it hard to feel fashionable in a tank top and shorts, some people can make it look amazing, but I am not one of those people haha, thus the Jasmine Bralette came to life! I wanted to make something breezy, a little longer than just a normal bralette, and I wanted it to be cute! So let’s dive into the pattern!

I had been wanting to make an off the shoulder top for some time but never quite got around to it till now. In fact making this top wasn’t even my first idea originally. I came up with a design that needed a lot of yarn in a lot of different colors, all of which I ordered, only to discover that the design might have been too ambitious. In general, I really don’t like giving up on things, but I am also trying to work on admitting when I am tackling a project that I’m not ready for yet and my original idea was definitely one of those projects. So there I was with a mountain of yarn and no idea what to use it for (not that that isn’t a constant state of life for us fiber artists). Then I remembered my long lost Off The Shoulder concept! Once I had finished it, it somehow made me think of Ariel from the little mermaid, this is probably due to the fact that I love Disney and will always manage to bring everything back to it haha, therefore it earned the name The Ariel Top!

If you don’t already know, it will become very obvious very soon that I absolutely love everything Disney. Lately I have been trying out the method of finding inspiration for designs through dates (not like romantic, but on a calendar haha). So my last pattern was in honor of Valentine’s Day and I decided to focus on Mardi Gras for this one! Now to tie that back to my love of Disney, usually the second I think of Mardi Gras I think of Princess and The Frog, which is one of my favorite Disney movies. Additionally, Tiana is hands down my favorite Disney Princess so it was kind of a no brainer to me to name the design after her. As traditional Mardi Gras Colors are Green, Gold, and Purple, I decided to use a green yarn and added some hints of gold for some flare. I had intended to actually post this on or before Mardi Gras, but life happens and sometimes our schedules get derailed, so I apologize for the delay!
