Thank you so much! I found all your comments on my last post so encouraging, interesting and a big confidence boost! Mwah.
So without further ado, here’s my second Drape Drape project…
Pattern No. 4: One Piece Scoop Neck Asymmetric Top
I’m completely sure about this one… this could be my favourite t-shirt ever. Slouchy, sexy, loose, scoop neck – and hello sleeves without setting in a sleeve – yes it’s pure magic!
I think this is a superb slouchy sexy t-shirt. I love the quirky sleeve hem on the slouchy side. I love how it drapes and wraps around my body. It’s just perfect. I could make a million of these.
I’ve made the small/medium size.
Again, easy as pie to construct after I studied the pictures. I actually didn’t refer to the instructions once I started. It’s quite simple and logical once you get going.
This is an incredibly fine black/silver lurex striped knit. It wasn’t fun to sew, it curled and the bands were difficult – it was worth it though! I think the shirt would look quite different again in a heavier knit (or even normal weight!) but I do love the softness of this and how it falls across the body.
I attached the neckline the same as I did for No.2 dress and actually slip stitched the binding over the wrong wide onto the overlocked edge by hand. The machine was determined to eat the neckline and I was determined it wasn’t going to happen – as unpicking this would have been impossible. The overlock seam for the doubled over binding strip provided some stability and firmness that was lacking with any other neckline finish.
The knit is so fine I’ve chosen to wear a strappy tank under it – if you follow me on Instagram you will know why! LOL.
And just because I love it so and often wear it in my photos – my favourite bangle…
Funnily enough Funk Bunny has made one too – so watch her blog for hers!
