New Top with Arm Warmers

I've made this three times now!!! I want to scream. The first time I made it I used a ribbed knit. Hated it. The second one I made I forgot my customer want it longer and instead of being 25" long as requested it was 22". I think she would of noticed three inches.

The top itself is adorable. I love the arm warmers. They do have the thumb glove. I don't know what you call that. The pictures on the dressform will never do it justice as it does not have a neck, shoulders or arms. I stuffed it a little for some shoulders but she will have to remain armless and short necked  :)
Hard to tell the front and back. I had a lot of fun with the finishing again using the twin needle. For my brother and serger I used a ball point needle. Sewing knits is so easy if you have the proper tools, so never shy away from the fabric!


  1. I see you have a "new look" in your blog, it's nice too. I've never used knit fabrics but I guess they are not very easy to work with.

  2. Thanks Lizzy. I needed to change it up a bit though I kind of miss my black and red.

    Knit really isn't as bad as people say. Just be sure to use a ball point needle. For the finer knits I just pin more but the jersey knits are real nice to work with.
