2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

November 13, 2008

MID WEEK POST

I didn't get very much sewing done over the weekend. I finally got my carpet cleaned and with all the moving things around and getting them put back where they were supposed to be I was just too tired. Me and my pals Lisa and Ebony had a Sunday afternoon "SEWALONG" at my house and I didn't get one thing sewn. I did however enjoy their company and all the sewing conversation and sewing planning.

Since Tuesday was a holiday I was determined to make some more headway with my Knit Top marathon. I made this brown knit Vogue pattern, the view with the rounded neckline and long sleeves.

I saw a top similar to this Butterick pattern at WalMart that I liked and used some fabric that Ebony had gifted this weekend to make it up. Don't know why the picture turned out so blurry. This top went together really quickly and I do think I'll make it again. I did lengthen this top 2 1/2 inches.
