Description

The Lydia I made up in a size 34 but I did taper out to the smallest possible seam allowance at the bottom to cater for my pear shape. This is such a fast easy project and results in a RTW looking top. I used my twin needles to do a mock coverstitch to finish the hems and neckline and I am pretty happy with the professional “non homemade” look it gives. Blogged here

    A lovely classic top. Super colour choice.

    Sewing jersey is not so difficult, even on a conventional sewing machine, if you use the right techniques.
