Seafarer Top: Pattern Tour

6.10.2013



I loved making my Seafarer Top!  I was so happy to say yes when Abby (Sew Much Ado) asked if I would join in on her  newest patterns blog tour.  I know for sure I'll wear a knit top, so this one was fun to make!

I actually sat down yesterday morning and about 45 minutes later I had a top to wear.  And it fits!  I think I could have gone up to a Medium (I made the Small), but really, both would work, just depends on how you like the fit.  


I love not having to hem knits.  I can hem them and it works pretty well, but not having to is even better!  And quicker!  Abby includes options to use arm bands and a waist band for this pattern and that's what I chose.  I think it gives a really nice finished look.


I used this really soft knit that I had gotten at Hancock Fabrics.  I was *this* close to making into a maxi dress or a tunic, but then I figured I'd probably get the most use out of the top.  I think I'll try a tunic version sometime though.
