The grey top is made of stretch polyester (?). The white and green top is made of an old dress from the 70s my grandmother gave to me. I love to reuse clothes (ee what the dress looked like at syblogerskan.blogspot.com)
I will make more tops using the Idit pattern. I want one in black…and one made of re-used old Tshirts (think Desigual)-style.
I used zigzag for all seams since the material is stretch and I do not have any overlock on my machine.
The only detail that is different from the pattern on my tops is the arms (see the cuff).
