Another Top Made, Another Outfit to Wear

I love this top!

Don’t ask me what the material is because sewing clothing is a whole new learning curve for me, and I don’t know the fabrics.  Yet.  But this fabric is so soft.  You just want to hug it.

I’m wearing it now over a t-shirt and an LLBean jean skirt–and with navy leggings.   Next summer I’ll wear this top all on its own–no t-shirt.

It’s “100 Acts of Sewing,” Shirt No 1.

I love the patterns that are out there today as many of them show you multiple ways to sew a garment and make some attempts to teach beginners.  Since I have not made clothes in 40 years, that’s a good thing!

I’ve mastered threading the serger now.  The above fabric was very prone to raveling, but I made French seams instead of trying to serve the seams.  Next I have to experiment with setting the tensions for various fabrics.  I love learning curves!

  1. You Go girl! You can do anything and everything if there are enough hours in the day. I love your attitude. It is always good to seek out new learning curves. Keeps us from getting old & stale.
