Turkey Tracks: Sewing Knit Tops

Sewing Knit Tops

It snowed last night—just enough to trap me on the hill until the plowers come for the driveway.  I’m a good snow driver, but the problem here is NOT going out, it’s coming home up the hill and the steep, curving driveway.  I’m missing the Coastal Quilters monthly meeting.  Bah Humbug!

So…  I’ll just have to cut out another knit top.  Once the pattern is made and the top is cut, it does not take long to sew it on the serger.  And I’m doing great with matching fabric patterns.

Here is another, more polished, version of the Linden Sweatshirt—in an Art Gallery fabric I instantly fell in love with some months back. My sewing teacher, Cheryl Rodriguez, who has a studio in Belfast, encouraged me to go DOWN a size with knits.  This top can be layered in the winter—which I need to do as I can’t bear the collar of a wool sweater on the back of my neck.  Too itchy!  This fabric feels like silk next to the skin.  So nice.

 

 

This Turtleneck top is from Paper Cuts patterns, the Fall version of the Rise/Fall knit shirt pattern.  I made it in Cotton+Steel knit fabric I got on sale from Pink Castle Fabrics.   I LOVE IT.  I made the medium, and it fits like a dream.  Perfect.

I’m really enjoying making these tops on the serger and feeling much more competent with that machine.

On to the next…
