WOW It's a new top for me

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That my top turned out great and it's wearable and I've already worn it several times and had quite a few compliments and have even had a couple of people ask me wear I bought it... of course I proudly said "I made it".... I think those are the proudest moments... well for me anyway :) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch all the videos and then go back and watch the appropriate videos for the project you are sewing.... and of course enjoy sewing with knits as there is definitely nothing to fear.

What you will need

  • Stretch Knit Jersey

Davesmom asked:
What a lovely material to make this top. Did you use facingings for the cut outs?
Chris Lucas answered:
Hi Davesmom... I got them fabric from Fabric.com as I just loved the colours. I did use facings and interfaced them... I'm thinking next time I might make my matching bias tape and use that instead.
SparkleSpinner asked:
