What materials did you use? medium weight cotton blend knit

What are you most proud of? I'm not terribly experienced at sewing with knits and don't own a serger. Using techniques I knew, along with what I learned from Meg Elwee's knit class, I believe the overall construction turned out well.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Read up on how to sew with knits before you start and by all means, make sure fit is right before you start sewing. The last thing you want to have to do is remove zigzag, overcast or other very tight stitches. Also, make sure you truly understand what your machine can do with regard to stitch types for knits, pressure foot adjustment and walking foot attachments.

I love the print and cowl neck.

Thank you. Do you sew much with knits? I'm still learning. By the way, your jewelry is lovely.

Thank you Linda,. I'm also learning to sew with knits. I prefer cotton, linen and stretchy bottom-weights.

Thank you. Its quite comfortable. I am thinking of making another top but will change the cowl neckline. Any ideas?
