A (big) bunch of tops

And they're all made from that Burda pattern using super soft knit fabrics from various local shops. Seriously I could live in these tops, they're so comfortable and with their demure boatneck and 3/4 sleeves they're ideal for work. Also I tried to make the most recent ones long enough to be worn with leggings, which worked okay and still the fabric's so light I can fold them or tuck them in when they're paired with skirts or shorts and there won't be any bulk.


A little Dora!!


I finished the neckline and sleeves by folding the fabric inside and using a medium zigzag seam:



As the white top which was too see-through, I had to line the upper front and back so the neckline was finished this way:



Also I've just found some navy with grey stripes knit in my stash so another one is definitely coming :)

  2. I love boatneck t-shirts - these look very professionally made and stylish! It''s helpful to know you made them without a serger- I have been shying away from knits because I don't have a serger but now I think I should give them a try!

    1. Thank you! You should definitely try sewing knits with your machine, as you can see the result is okay :)

  4. All are great-looking tops! I always like the boatneck style (which makes me wonder why I haven't gotten around to making this pattern....)
