2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

NEW KNIT TOP

I made this twisted knit top long sleeved version today from start to finish. The twisted part was a little daunting but I worked it through. My retro print made for a real interesting design don't you think? I'll be wearing it to work tomorrow.


















Next up is another version of this New Look top that will be made up out of my geometric knit print. I've got it cut out, marked and ready to go. I should be able to get it made up before the end of the week.
