2010 Sewing Challenge - sewing with knit fabric

I think I can safely scrape in on this challenge - sew something in a knit fabric.
I've just finished sewing this:

...however I may be stretching (ha ha knit-fabric joke ) the limit a little bit, cause I actually started making this last year, and it has been staring forlornly at me for the last eight months. (Also hoping it's not cheating having some woven fabric on the neckline).
This is the pattern I used:

and as I like to kid myself that I started this challenge on time in January I sewed this for myself.

This is the top I bought a few years ago, and it's so comfortable that I searched for a pattern so I could make more.

When I pulled the top out to finish, I discovered I'd bought material to make 2 more tops. I'll add them to my list of things to finish. Check in through the year and see if I've managed.

So onwards to March - a softie.

Thanks for taking a peek over the fence...


  1. this looks pretty darn comfortable ... and great colour choices

  2. Thanks - It's worked really well. I'm looking forward to making more of them now.

  3. Wow! Very nice! I have this pattern but I don't know what I did with it (prob. hid it from hubby after a shopping trip to the local fabric store). When I do I will be giving it a try. I hope my top turns out as nice!


Nice of you to take a peek over the fence. It's lovely to meet you. Do come in, have a cuppa and a chat. I will talk back...
