What materials did you use? rayon knit. this pattern is a freebie, comes in one size only on Burda. The neck and armholes are unfinished, as per pattern. Took no time even for a newbie.

Did you learn this top in this class?

no link to pattern is above. this class helps newbies choose the right stitches, needles, extras like elastic tape etc. Great for beginners sewing knits. I opted for this pattern when doing a T because I could :) The course provides 4-5 patterns (hoodie, t, dress, yoga pants/shorts) I just haven't the right fabric to do those yet.

Wow! Looks fantastic. I have always loved this style. Great job!

Thanks. I must say Ichigogirl got the collar just right. Will be trying to enlarge to my size soon. But I suspect the wow factor is in the colour. She gets comments from total strangers, "Where did you get that shirt"...and it literally took 30 minutes to sew, as no edges are finished. Washed and worn many many times already and still looking good

Haha, too funny, cause NO WAY I would try making a bag! Looks way to complicated to there you go.... You have talent, you can make a garment, go for it!

Funny! I think it's because with a bag, there are set sizes, but with garments, you need to adjust them to fit a person. I know I have looked at how tailors manage to fit items to bodies, and some of the software to create garment patterns, and it seems like rocket science. With a bag, slow stitching and careful cutting are all you need to do! Anyway, I might take your advice and make something for my wife and daughters! Cheers. Take care! Greg.
