This will be my last Freya top before I switch to Christmas gift-making. Freya is my TNT pattern for a long sleeved top with cowl collar. It takes just over an hour from start to finish to make a new top.
For this version I used some unusual printed viscose jersey with a crepe finish, 2 metres for £9.98 from Rainbow Fabrics that I bought back in September 2021 – so not been long in my stash!
I used a seam allowance of 1.5 cms as the fabric was very stretchy. I sewed some seams on my machine using a zig-zag stitch set at 1mm width x 2mm length. Other seams were completed on the overlocker.
For this version I once again added a double folded cuff on the sleeves. For the hem I first overlocked then turned up 1.5 cms before twin needle machine stitching in place.
I am particularly pleased with the print placement on this top, who wouldn’t want a Goldfish swimming on their midriff? This top will be worn over trousers and skirts. Now onto sewing Christmas gifts!
