Having recently re-visited my ‘Mona’ top I knew that it would be a great pattern to use just 1 metre of this tie dyed frilled jersey fabric that I bought from Rainbow Fabrics, Kilburn in their sale.
Whilst I still had the sewing machine and overlocker set up for jersey sewing with White thread it took no time at all to complete this latest top, especially as no hemming is involved!
I stabilised the shoulder seam with some fusible seam tape and then cut a neckband from some Pale Blush jersey remnant, this time 1¾ inches wide. Previous neckbands have been cut 2 inches wide and I knew that this time I wanted a narrower, neater finish.
The neckband stitched on like a dream. The resultant top fulfills the requirement of a distinctive top, fits into my ‘Spring Greens & Daffodils’ collection and I look forward to wearing it.
