New top

 I made a new top last week . It's a Sandra Betzina Todays Fit pattern . 
It's my second version . I like the fit much better than the first one , but I'm no sure I Love this version . 
It's a brighter color than I normally wear , but hey different can be better too. 
The knit is pretty thin ITY I got at Stone Mountain & daughter last year. The pattern needs fabric with drape , but I do fiddle with the "knot" part . 
So I'll wear it a few more times to decide if it's a keeper .
Happy Sewing

Garment mojo is back

I finally got my garment sewing mojo back this week .
I have been sewing a ton , but seem to always put myself & sewing for myself on the back burner. 
I made this Sandra Betzina Today's Fit pattern . I was fitted for this pattern by Sandra at her recent workshop I attended . It is a very flattering pattern & her fitting tips were great. I need to make a few tweaks next time, but nothing too major . The fabric was a combo knit set I got from Marcy Tilton fabrics when I attended Sewing Expo in Puyallup 2 years ago. 
I had never sewn with mesh & had been very intimidated. But I followed Sandra's knit tips & it sewed like a dream . 
I have another version cut & ready to go ! 
I'm taking advantage of the sewing mojo being back & making another version . 
Happy Sewing
