Here's item #4 for my wardrobe contest entry. I'm sure you guys think I'm just screaming through this wardrobe. I have been so far but that's about to stop. I have been doing knit tops which are easy and already TNT. It's easy to go fast when you know it'll fit. Now its on to the hard, more time-consuming patterns. I have the jeans cut out and the pockets are embroidered and attached. My grandparents are coming into town so I'll be taking a sewing break for a couple of days.
Here's the Jalie twist top with a thin shirt under it. I used a Gorgeous Fabrics knit I purchased about a year ago. I think I've finally used it all up.
I just love the back of this shirt. I'll probably wear it just like this to school tomorrow. I love the red peaking out in the front and back.
Here's a close-up of the twist portion. Since it was the second time around for me for this pattern, I didn't have any problems with the knot/twist at all. It really was fast to make this. There are only 3 pattern pieces and strips for the ties. The part that took me the longest was finding the two strips I had cut for the ties. And, of course, as soon as I cut them out again, I found the original two ties. Dammit.
