Description

So, I made this Built by Wendy top (Simplicity 2865) and then wore it to my nephew’s birthday party…. which just happened to be a pirate party. It was kind of funny. It looked like I made just for the pirate party, but I didn’t really. I wanted to use a striped fabric because of the side pieces in the pattern and I found this black and white stripe knit at Hancock for $2 a yard. This is also part of my campaign to sew fabrics that I am not comfortable sewing. I’ve pretty much stuck to woven cottons or cotton blends. I’m trying to use other fabrics and sew out of my comfort zone. I used flat felled seams throughout so there would be no raw edges inside the garment. I added the flowers after seeing an appliqued tee in a Garnet Hill catalog.
