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!
