Over at Mood Sewing Network today, is a couple of knit tops I made this week. My intentions were for a jacket for these tops, too. Time got away from me and the jacket just didn't get done. Last night I went to start that jacket and this stripe knit from Mood Fabrics, called my name.
I had used this knit before only in Navy and just loved it. I wore and wore this navy Renfrew all summer long. I thought, the serger is all set up with white thread and a knit top is so quick, yes, a change of plans!
This time I wanted to use the red-orangey stripe knit in a dolman top and I found a free pattern Cation Designs
It went together so quickly. I compared the top to the Renfrew pattern. I wanted the dolman to be a bit bigger and judged my size on this.
- do not add length if you are tall and think you need it. I added 1" and will not do this next time
- the measurements for the cuff and neckline pieces are too large. I took out 4" in the neckline and 1-1/2" in the cuff
So that quick decision to sew this top was a good one, something new to wear today!
Have a great weekend, I am watching the little guy and he is learning to crawl.....gotta go he is on the move!
