Coffee Date Ruffle Stretch Top

Added Nov 25, 2009

Brighton, United...






The pattern for this T-shirt is a hybrid of a pattern from the Built By Wendy ‘Sew U: Home Stretch’ and an exisiting well-fitting T-shirt. I made it nice and long to avoid middriff drafts! It has gathered sleeve heads and I used the ruffle idea from the Coffee Date dress. I’m very happy with the results, I made it last week and have already worn it heaps. I love how quick stretch garments are to make! Apologies for the me-centric photo! Not sure how to crop photos on my laptop.

More creating and discussing on my blog:

Material Notes

Some nice fairly light weight stretch fabric.

    oh I like it, nice riff on the coffee date ruffle – I like that the ruffle is smaller, and in jersey, and on a T – works well!

    Oh this is cute, I thought I saw a top in here somewhere but not sure. I still have to make my coffee date dress and now I have to make the coffee date top.

    Great top! I’m also enjoying stretch knits and Built-by-Wendy lately! :)

    I love this top. I have been looking at the Built-By-Wendy book, and I think now I might buy it. Good job.

    You self centred Essex-girl! :) top top! Makes me feel like working faster! I love Barcelona’s bathrooms, the few I have been too always had a kind ‘Almodovaresque’ touch to them but to put it this way: Barcelonese washrooms never waited to be influenced by Pedro
