Simplicty 8925 - Brushed DTY Knit from Fabrics by the Yard

This post and beautiful fabric is thanks to Fabrics by the Yard and I am loving this soft brushed fabric

I have been wanting to make Simplicity 8925,  wrap top and thanks to Fabrics by the Yard, I had enough yardage to make this wrap top.  Speaking of yardage, I went with 

My favorite part of this top, besides the wrap, is the sleeves and this lovely fabric just makes them drape perfectly.

Don't worry if this isn't your colorway or floral isn't your thing, check out all the other Brushed DTY choices available at Fabric by the Yard - there are plaids, paisleys, animal prints to name a few

The lavender floral is so perfect for spring and summer and I really need some spring-like colors in my wardrobe.  This floral has such gorgeous colors in the print, I knew it would fabulous with white jeans, blue jeans and I am thinking some olive pants, too.  It is such a versatile fabric and I am loving the possibilities for different outfits. 

This top was very straight forward but I would make a couple of changes.  First, I think the slit for the tie on the side seam, is too wide, especially with a knit which folds over.  Also, one of the ties is way too long, you can see that on the pattern envelope

I have it tucked into the ties for the photos and will probably wear it with the tie tucked.

On this top, I used a combination of my serger and small zig zag, which worked perfectly on this brushed knit.  

As I had mentioned, this fabric is so soft, I used the extra for my granddaughters, a pair of pajamas for one and a nightgown for the other. 

Thank you Fabrics by the Yard for the beautiful DTY Knit and I will be back in a couple of days with another garment courtesy of Fabrics by the Yard

Disclosure - The fabric was given me to by Fabrics by the Yard but the opinions are all mine.


  1. Beautiful top, and love the pairing with white jeans! I have this pattern, and originally I thought I'd make the dress. NOW, I think I'll make the top :) Thanks, Lori!

  2. My wish right now is that God should continue to bless Dr Emu for his good works towards the life of those people who are heart broken. My name is Michael DeBruin and I am from the USA, it's been a while since my lover's attitude changed from being the caring type she has been to me, but later turned out not to be caring at all. But not long, I later discovered that my lover was having an affair with someone else. and also she told me she doesn't need me after all we pass through then a friend told me about a spell caster. that with the spell I will get back my woman, I took his cell number then called him and also what's-app him which he reply to me and I did some sacrifices to the spell man and he bought the items for me which he used for the sacrifices and later called me that before 48 hours my love will come back to me and now we are more in love with each other than ever. you can reach him on WhatsApp +2347012841542 or reach him via mail ; , my lover returned back and broke up with the other guy she was having a relationship with... Thank you Dr Emu.

  3. After losing $60k to this binary crypto investment in 2022, I didn’t think I’d ever trust any form of crypto investment platform again. Luckily for me I was able to recover the funds through this incredible Hacker Steve who understands everything about the blockchain network. It was an emotional moment for me but Hacker Steve literally saved my life. He was able to pull back all my transactions. I would advise anyone in the same situation to not panic cuz digital assets can be recovered. Other assets such as stolen funds, stolen credit, lost crypto, etc. Contact Hacker Steve on Gmail:
