Antrim, Co Antri...






I saw this top and thought it looked great in the magazine and then i saw chula 123’s version and i had to make one? Did i say one? I meant five so far lol and i plan more. This is a great quick project and the outcomes lovely and comfortable. This is a great stashbuster. Just the front back and some binding and you have a top. X

Material Notes

jersey and scuba fabric

      Oh Mary, isn’t it boring to make 11 pieces of the same cloth? I will surely post my T-shirt as soon as I will have finished it.

    What a nice collection of tops, Mary! They flatter the figure and look different despite the same pattern! Especially I like the combined of two fabrics (blue floral and yellow) – it freshes so well! and the red floral – passion is your nature, I guess:-)

    All tops are lovely and the fabrics too. Like the contrast of the one that you are modeling in.

    Awesome tops Mary! I was beginning to think you got lost in that new sewing room of yours! Question: did you just machine stitch the binding, rather than by hand? I really like the neckline on this top. And did you add any length? Yours look great on you !

      Hi rita and thanks, i hav’nt got my sewing room fimished yet!! Its a work in progress lol. I got myself a part time job on top of my full time job to take mum on holiday etc. It’s in an ice cream parlour and i love it, trouble is i thought i’d lose weight with two jobs but i gained weight eating ice cream lol.
      right the tops, on the first one (blue) i added 2 " but found i needed more so on all the others i added 4". On the neckline i made a binding/facing. I traced round the patterns neckline and cut out a front/ back one inch piece, then i machined it flipped it to the inside stiched again then i pinked it and it worked great. Very quick x

      Thanks! Easy enough. I think the neck lays much nicer with the shaped facing you made. I love your instructions, my kind of language! :-)))

      Too bad your so far away; the Burda’s I was given start in 1960!
