Description

TOP: This is the first knit fabric I have worked with and the pattern was so easy! The pattern said to have raw edges, but I overlocked the edges and then rolled them and did a narrow hem. The top only took about 2 hrs to make (cutting and sewing). It is very comfortable and I’m really pleased with how it looks. I will be making another!

SHORTS: The shorts are also extremely comfortable as the material is slightly stretchy. The pattern for these is also quick and simple to follow.

Material Notes

Top: 1m knit material, thread
Shorts: 80cm material, zipper, thread

    I absolutely LOVE this shirt! And it looks so good on you! I think I’m going to have to try to make myself one next time I go buy fabric. :)

    This ensemble is absolutely breathtaking and stunning! Very flattering top! As Roddy Stewart would croon, “You Wear It Well!” ;-}

    Hi, I have added a pic of the top layed out flat. It is one piece of material and folded along the straight side. It’s should sit on my hips a bit lower and be more angled but I made it a little too small! I thought the pic would best explain how the gathers fall.

    This is adorable. I am making it tonite. Looks like you could cut it on a fold, fit, two seams and poof…cute shirt!! I have no idea how to do the gather, though.
