New Sewing!

image 
It’s not a Wiksten tank this time!  This is the Sailor Top from Fancy Tiger Crafts and I made it in Nani Iro Double Gauze (this color way is Poppy Trip Ohanashi - the second row down, third from the left) purchased from Purl Soho.  I kept reading about the wonders of double gauze on the Internets so I decided to get some and see what all the fuss is about.  At first I wasn’t that impressed, but then I washed it and started messing around with it and now I understand - it’s soft and wonderful and so, so soft.  Did I mention soft?  I originally planned to make a Wiksten Tank out of it, but once I got a feel for the (washed) fabric, I decided it might do better as something else.  Fortunately, it’s only about 40 inches wide so I had purchased enough to make something else.  A bit of wandering around the Internets and I found this top pattern.  I thought the soft gathers from the neckline might be nice with the softness of the double gauze.

The pattern is super easy and worked up quickly.  I got the pdf version so I could print it up immediately.  I’ll be wearing this with skinny jeans to balance the A-line shape.  I’d also like to take a minute and point out that I was smart enough to cut out all my pieces with the flowers going right side up.

On an unrelated note, the requirements for Loopy Academy are up!  I’ll be doing Sophomore knitting and Freshman sewing this fall!  Join in if you’re interested!  The pace is much slower and more relaxed than Camp Loopy.
