2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

October 31, 2008

THE END OF A WEEK OF EASY KNIT DRESSING...

Simplicity 2804 Turned out not only to be a good fit and comfortable but also gained me lots of compliments today. I don't just make things to get compliments, but they certainly don't hurt. Compliments confirm what we are already feeling about something we've made. My students were amazed because this was a knockoff of what one of them wore last week. The students inspire me too (sometimes - lol). I think I'll make another one these, I can see myself getting a lot of use from this pattern.

  1. The top looks even nicer on you than it does the dress form. Very Nice!

  2. Faye - those fast and easy tops are just flowing out of your sewing machine! But the main thing is that they don't look fast and easy...they look fashionable, well-fitted and well-made! WOW!!!

  3. Man - Linda you are sewing up a storm. I wish I had the time or better yet the energy to sew like I used to. The tops you made are absolutely fab. The brown knit Simplicity top turned out wonderful. (the band turned out nice.) I can't wait to see what you make next. Come on over if you want - I need a chicken shack fix.
