More Sewing...

I was glad to get a couple hrs of sewing in this weekend.  I made this top to have something new to go with the white skirt from a couple posts back.  Ya!  This is just a jersey knit and the black binding around the neck & sleeves is bias strips I cut from some light weight poly knit (not sure what to call it) it's not a tricot but reminds me of tricot but it's more stable, has a little stretch and a nice sheen.  I plan to make a couple tank/camisole tops just to wear under low cut things.  I know, I'm going on about the black trim but it's so nice I wish I could get another 10/yds of it.  It's kinda nice to have around.   OK, back to the top, I made this top from "Pamela's Patterns" T-shirt pattern.  I've been meaning to use this pattern for a while but just now getting around to it.  It's a very simple pattern but one of the nicest fitting T-shirt patterns I've tried.  I haven't really made a t-shirt in a while and I guess that is the reason. Any I've tried in the past just didn't fit nicely.  This one is great without much adjusting.

OK, another thing I'm going to get back to doing is full reviews on the items I make.  I haven't posted a review on PatternReview in quite some time.  So, I'm going to copy the template and use it on my blog here and on PR as I've seen many of you do, that's such a time saver.  I've gotten lazy about some things in an effort to reserve all my free time for sewing.  I've got to do better...I know I didn't do it this time but going forward...OK...promise.

More later....

HAPPY SEWING!!

Wow , looks like more than a simple t-shirt to me! I love the fabric and the belt gives a nice accent. Of course, went on Pam's website before i could finish reading you post. lol

I'm really loving this knit top! Where do you find your great knits from?

It is a very pretty knit top and I can understand your love of binding. It's those simple things that really make a garment. Oh and I understand about just wanting to sew...*smile*

Thanks guys! It's funny, after I bought this fabric I thought "what was I thinking" and it set in my stash for awhile. Then I thought just a simple top will be just the thing for this fabric & it worked out.

Alethia: I "think" I got this fabric from FabricMart Fabrics.com or Fabric.com I bought it about 2/yrs ago.

That's very pretty. I love a black/white top, to be worn with either color bottom. Quite dressy.

Such a pretty top. I love abstract prints and it looks great with the white skirt.

I love your top!! Looks more like a blouse than a t-shirt to me. And the white skirt makes the top stand out even more, I love it.
