A very easy top

Athens, Greece






I made this lycra top using a rtw as a guide, it has only one seam at the back and it is very easy to make. I have made it approximately ten times so far and I sure will make it again. I promise to post a tutorial as soon as I find enough internet time!

      Thank you very much! It’s true that I use jersey very often so somehow I know how to handle it although I don’t have a serger and the result is never as nice as the rtw:( I need a serger now!

      You mean the back seam? The idea was from a rtw!

      Maybe more than 10 times, some version have already wore off! It is only one seam, one hem and one finishing at the back. The neckline has no finishing because of the drape! If you have a serger you can sew it in 30 minutes!

    Great top Liliv. You look good in everything you sew and I am sure you are turning heads in Athens. Come to Australia, we have many Greek people here and you will turn heads here too.

      I know some Greek people who have lived in Australia and everybody says that your country is a paradise! I would love to live in a pretty country without problems (here we have tons of problems)!!!! I don’t live in Athens anymore, I just moved to a pretty island called Zakynthos, it has the more gorgeous beaches I have seen in Greece!

      Thank you kisses! Brown is the best color on me, many times when I wear something brown near to my face somebody asks me if I changed my make up or my hair color:)

      Thank you Hellen! I love this top and this rtw skirt but the mismatched plaids bother me very much!

      I love the color too Mary, I found this fabric 5 years ago in an extremely low price and bought 10 meters of it. I made almost all the brown clothes I have posted here from it and some more. Now it is only 1 meter left and I regret I didn’t buy more back then as I am a brown fanatic!

      I"m the same liliv, a shop in belfast was selling the most gorgeous red jersey at £2 a metre. I bought 5 then i went back and bought another 5. The shop closed after that and i could kick myself now for not buying at least 10 metres more. I can picture a halterneck jumpsuit which would/ve looked fabulous in the red but oh well lol x
