This is top #2 for the Spring Top Sewalong at Made By Rae. The first top was the Pintucked J. Crew Knock Off.
I have been wanting to try sewing with new fabrics, and I decided to try my hand at polyester knit. Oh. My. Gosh. This fabric is amazing. I usually love "natural" fabrics, but this knit doesn't wrinkle, it doesn't fray, it doesn't curl, and it sews like a dream. Not to mention it is stretchy so is super comfortable to wear.
I like wearing sleeveless shirts, but I don't love low necklines, so a hight neckline was on my list of must-haves. And I can never find shirts long enough, so I wanted to suuuuper long to fit nice and low on my hips.
The Blue Waves Top was born.
I wish ya'll could feel how comfortable this top truly is.
One day you might...because I WILL be making another one soon, and there WILL be a tutorial. I know how ya'll love DIY's.
It's snug in the hips, and lose around my tummy. I don't worry about straps slipping with a nicely tied bow around the shouler.
Perfect for a night out, or relaxing at home.
(or outside on the park bench)
It makes me jump for joy.
