another Tessuti Fave Top

Yes, it’s another Tessuti Fave Top. I had some leftover fabric from another project, and with some judicious piecing – I added a centre back seam and also a small wedge of fabric at one side back corner – I was able to eke out this top.

Tessuti Fave Top

This is a top that always looks better in real life than it does in photos. I do like an oversized top with skinny pants (these are the StyleARC Elle pants). It was constructed on the overlocker, with twin needle stitched hems. I did stablise the neckline with double sided fusible tape before stitching it down – well worth it. I think that I’ve made this top about six times now. Some times are more successful than others – it really does depend on the fabric and how well it drapes; whether it skims and folds, whether it sticks out stiffly, or whether it clings. This one worked nicely – it’s a viscose blend jersey from Darn Cheap Fabrics. When I made this one I made another in a black spotted knit for a friend for her 50th – and it looks great on her!
