The Blue Waves Top

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.

  3. Ooh Lovely. I hope you do make a tutorial. =) It's similar to a top I made before with the bow, I would link to the post, but google has broken all our images. *sigh* But the one in my header beadsandbarnacles.blogspot.com - but it's not fitted and I'd love to do another one fitted at the waist because it looks really good.
