Tried and True

Hi ,

I don’t know about you but I tend to repeat patterns or shapes that work for me , particularly with remnants. I love remnants , I find them interesting, leftover fabrics that lend themselves to possibilities.When you are left with enough fabric to make a simple top I always go for it.

The two boxy tops above are made from remnants the shape works well for me and I wear them under a jacket often . I self drafted these and I had a little less than a metre of fabric to work with . Both are silk one quite coarse weave the other a satin. The black and silver fabric came from Spotlight years ago , I edged the neck and armholes with fold over elastic it worked well.

The satin one I picked up the fabric in Bali years ago and is leftover from a dress I made . I just folded over the neck and armholes. They are very comfortable and great layering pieces.

Happy Sewing,

Sue 🙂
