I'm really beginning to become a pattern repeater, but there are certain patterns that I turn to when I don't know what else to sew, or in the case of this one, when I need a go-to piece that I know will turn out the way I want and make me feel better about sewing choices that don't always turn out right.
This is KwikSew 3740, the better of their two cowl neck patterns (the other one has cut-on sleeves and just isn't as good, at least on me).

Shades of brown are always going to be a favorite - with my skin tone, brown is far more flattering than black. I love the subtle variation of colors; the fabric appears more textured than it is, and it has a lovely hand.
Chickens are doing well, for those who care. They have a new favorite food - leftover baked beans from Labor Day weekend. Watching a chicken toss a bean up in the air and then snarf it down in one bite is something I can just sit and watch. And I did today, and it almost made me late for work.
But as for the top. It may not be exciting, but it fits, it looks good, I wore it today, and I feel a sense of redemption after a lackluster project. So it goes.
