My Projects

Stripes cotton top

Posted on July 24, 2011 at 8:25 PM


Ok last couple weeks were so far the hottest days of this summer. I feel good when I can wear summer clothes in summer. You know what I mean... Canada has never been hot weather for me. I put on sweaters and suits all the time in summer - at work. And my husband is lucky that he can work from home , but then our energy is way higher than it was cause he turns on air conditioning and I have to pull the blanket to cover while watching TV at home. Anyway, last week was hot but I'm happy with the heat :) weird ... eh!!!  
  
  


Well that is about the weather. Let talk about my sewing. I love orange - My favourite color. I got this orange/beige cotton knit piece quite long ago. I bought 4m cost only $10. This is my 2-hour project for the weekend. Comfortable it's my target - super cool and super loose style.
   
 
To play with the stripes, the main top is horizontal stripes, but front sleeves were vertical stripes and center back's neck  was cut out as deep U shape and replaced by vertical stripes and double pleats at back center.  
  
   
Sewing was very simple. I used the serger machine to serge all parts together. For hems I used Zig-zag stitch function of the sewing machine.  
   

 Well this will be my outfit for tomorrow. I can't wait :) .

Thanks a lot Myra. I don't think you have to worry anything about "the belly fat" cause this cover up the whole thing. Plus really you will look good in it. It fits you too :). Thanks for stopping by :)

I love this "2-hour" top, it's absolutely beautiful. I love loose tunics like this but need to get rid of some belly fat before they'll look as nice on me as yours does on you!!
