New Look 6915


I find that I don't spend much time shopping for ready-to-wear clothing for myself anymore....I have lots of ideas, patterns and fabric for items that I just would rather sew. But I did go shopping a couple of times in the last month or so, and was amazed at how many times I saw tops in this style in the stores. This pattern goes back a year or two maybe, and I like the longer length and breezy style.

I used one of JoAnn Fabrics "silky prints" in my favorite colorway of this summer: yellow, gray, white and black. I've been sewing with knits so much lately, it was fun to work with this fabric. I found I had to stabilize the hems at the sleeves and bottom hem as this fabric wanted to curl and tunnel on itself. Other than that, the only adjustments I made were to add 1" in length, and ease out the side seams from 5//8" to 1/4". No FBA necessary, and I love the cut-on drapey cowl. This is a quick and easy top to make!
