Nashville, Tenne...






In the past month I have been sewing feverishly to create a late summer line for Local Honey which was fun, simple, and lacked those annoying closures like zippers and such. My idea was to take plain tank styles, and chop off an oval shape from either just one, or both sides of the torso, and replace it with a flowing knit or chiffon fabric in a godet kind of way. To achieve this I would cut a semicircular piece out of the 2nd fabric, along the grain, to the measurement of the cutout. This creates a very nice drape, flat in in the middle, and flowing down the bias, which does not pucker since it is bias on straight grain (and not just 2 bias together getting all stretchy and wonky). As for finishing, fine tuned my serger to the right tension, and did a rolled hem with 2 threads.

This top is on sale now at Local Honey in Nashville, but I had such a hard time parting with this ancient style map, with everything purposefully mispelled.
