I love black and white. Your top is lovely. What pattern did you use. What was the twill tape for? I bought stretch material this week, also: stretch elastic, tween needles, and elastic thread.

I used Simplicity 1916. I used twill tape to stabilize shoulder seam because I did not have clear elastic as recommended in the Craftsy class.

Thank you for the information. This pattern suits you!! Looks like the twill tape works just fine. Have you washed your Tee yet?

09/22/2012 Flag

Yep. I washed and dried the fabric under "worst case conditions" before I cut out the pattern. For me worst case is warm water on regular wash cycle and machine drying. By doing this, even it I plan to had wash and drip dry or machine wash and hang to dry I know how the fabric will do if I get lazy or my husband does the laundry and throws everything in together. I have also washed the finished blouse and it came out fine.
