Description

I based this top on a maternity top I own and love, but is close to the end of its life span. It was much easier to work without a pattern than I expected. I still wear the top even though I am not expecting (or so I think, hehe). It ties in the back, but I couldn’t make a decent photo of the back.
I traced the top straight over the thick navy blue fabric, which my friend rescued from her boss’ stash about to get thrown away. I deleted the collar neck and front tie, added the ribbon at neck and sleeves, and for lack of a good looking button, I added a bead and loop.
It is my first time working with a stretchy fabric, and I don’t own a serger, so I now know why people complain about working with it. Apparently I pulled the fabric inadvertedly while I was sewing the hem, and because I did not use a stretch stitch, the end result is less than desirable, So I’m off to the learning section on here to learn about working with knits.
