I had a casual dinner to go to at someone's house last night, and wanted something comfy to wear, so I decided to try and overcome the sewing lethargy with Tessuti's free 'Fave Top' - you can find it here.
It is a very simple project, so I thought I should be able to muster up the energy for it. I finished it just in the nick of time:
It is basically a very loose t-shirt that comes down in those tail-type things at the side (my description is so technical!):
The back just covers my bum - it is loose enough that you get bum-coverage anyway:
I made a few changes/additions to the pattern:
- I lengthened the front and back by approx 5cm.
- I used bias binding for the neck -- the pattern calls for the neck edge to be turned under.
- I interfaced the hem -- it was much easier to sew interfaced, and I could get those nice little 'points' at the side seams.
I wore it with leggings (so comfy for eating a huge dinner in) and little ballet slippers.
It is a great pattern - nice and easy - and free! I'm still feeling no love for my machine though -- I'm going to read a book I got for my b'day today and resolutely ignore it - I must need a good break!
