Description

I do like colors and I fell in love with this fabric. It’s a polyester jersey and I mixed it with a bit of black crocodile jersey to make it more fun. I have used a pattern from a Scandinavian sewing magazine 2011. I like the style of this top very much and it makes me cheerful ;-)

    I’ve never seen crocodile jersey before…must say it looks great! It gives your top a bit of a rocker edge. Very cool!

      That’s nice to hear – thank you so much!
      I understand the expression that it’s very you, because I use it too. I think we love more or less the same fabric :-)

    Very nice, as always your taste at combinating different colours and textures is pure and worth learning! The colours of the fabric are very expressive!

    This is a great jersey top Ellen! If I saw a top like this in the store I would buy it in a heartbeat! I think the crocodile jersey in combination with the colors is brilliant… ;))

    What a fabulous top and so different to every other tee shirt . Your combination of the 2 fabrics is great. I have never seen crocodile jersey before and I would never have thought to combine it into a top like this. You are very clever.
