This pattern is in my wardrobe plan, but I was sent a fabric different than the one I ordered. Since I wanted to get my February Burda project out of the way, I decided to just make it up with something in my stash. I'll make it again for the wardrobe once I get the correct fabric.
Silk jersey from Gorgeous Fabrics. I bought it nearly a year ago... Yes, those are black owls with bursting red tails that you see. My husband was sitting at the dining table when I was cutting the fabric. He kept looking at it funny but he knew better than to say anything.
This is essentially a t-shirt except there's no hemming to do because the neck, sleeves, and waist are finished with bands of doubled fabric. Easy!
The waistband is drafted to be 4 inches long when finished. I was worried about the top being too short so the finished length of my waistband is 5 inches.
Easy top, I look forward to making it again in knit gauze.
