|Version #1- work top|
The first is a work look- I used a poly/lycra jersey knit in a crazy black, cream and red animal print. This one went together so well, and fit so perfectly, that as soon as I was done, I said, "okay, what else can I make from this pattern?"
|Version #2 Casual top with jeans|
So, my next version is more casual- it's a grey and white geometric rayon lycra knit that I thought I could wear with my grey jeans. Again, my growing addiction to this pattern left me hungry for more! So, I thought "Hmmm...let's try some completely different fabric...."
|Version #3- Short dress with leggings.|
I still was riding high from 3 good rolls of the dice, so I thought I would really play a wild card on the next version.
|Version #4- Dressy Party Top!|
Which is where this last top came in. This is a sequined mesh knit- very little stretch, so I made the seam allowances just 1/4 inch. I LOVE this one! It will be perfect for holiday parties!
The sequins are hard to photograph, so Elise, my photographer, took a video to catch how the sequins light up when I move.
And the best part of this- the fabric was part of a FREE mystery bundle from Fabric Mart! As I always say, you can't beat FREE!
I stopped here, but I swear that the possibilities for this pattern are endless. It went together so easily, and fits so nicely, that I can see making this for holiday gifts, with short sleeves for spring, and sleeveless for summer.
You can still buy this issue here! It is absolutely worth it even if all you make is this one pattern!
