I loved making this simple top. I’m a bit obsessed by stripes come summer time. It’s a jersey ontop and a silk bottom…

Jersey and silk

    i just made a similar top for myself from my brother’s old hoody one afternoon last month. (He had outgrown it a while ago and it was in my stash). It’s not as nicely finished as yours though because I didn’t have any bias binding for the neckline.

      I didn’t use any bias binding on this…I’m a cheat. When i sew with jersey i just double it over twice and then stitch the collar and sleeves. Once there’s no raw edge i think your good to go!

      I just rolled the neckline too, but I stretched it too much as I sewed, so now I have soft pleats in the neckline. : )
