Two-Tone Singlet

Last week I received a very nice email from Harrison on behalf of his mother, Heather, together  they are working on a great new sewing site,
Teach Me Fashion
and they asked me to blog about their new site and try out the
Two-Tone Singlet.  I was happy to help, it is such a cute pattern.





On the site it states Heather has over 40 years in the fashion industry and has lectured Fashion Design.



At Teach Me Fashion you will find a free pattern download, the Two-Tone Singlet.  The Singlet includes very nice instructions but the best part is a video.  The video gives in-depth instructions on constructing the Singlet and shows exactly how to sew the right angles, tucks, hems, etc.  It is a marvelous resource for not only sewing the
 Two-Tone Singlet but great general sewing information.


The sugested  fabrics  are  wovens but I didn't have anything in my stash that would look appropriate for this cute pattern.  I did have some black ponte and a knit houndstooth which I felt were perfect for this singlet.  The top really showcases a fun print but solids are perfect, too.

I did a couple of changes, lowering the neckline and I just turned the edges under instead of using bias binding.

Here is the back, I love how Heather carries the same detail from the front to the back.

I hope you head over to download the free pattern and what goodies Heather has for us in the future at
Teach Me Fashion

    1. Thanks, Stacy, they are classic fabrics and will work well in summer and then fall with a cardigan.

  6. Lori, what a cute top that is. Does the interesting seaming in the front incorporate a bust adjustment? I'll have to hop on over and check out that new (to me) site. Thanks for sharing!

    1. The pattern does not incorporate it but you could adjust for a FBA I believe.
