Productive day for my last day off

Today has been very productive sewing wise.  I decided to make another Vogue 8669 now that I have got the pattern tweaked to for a better fit.  I had some black crepe knit in my stash, acquired from Les Fabrique in Charlottesville, VA.  It is at least three years old.  I love the rich black color of this knit and the texture.  I had enough of this fabric to make two tops.  So the second top I made was Pamela's Perfect T-shirt pattern #104.

I was surprised about the fit of the Pamela's Pattern.  I had made one from this pattern before, but it was huge.  I decided to give it a try again though and went with the small due to high bust measurement and then made a one inch FBA.  This turned out well.  I did use the front pattern piece with the dart.  This resulted in a good fit.

I wear a lot of black for my job.  I never seem to have enough black tops., either RTW or custom made by me.   One of my favorite black tops is one I made from a Sandra Betzina pattern that it is now looking fairly worn.  I decided to give it to Goodwill.

So now I have two new tops to start the new year.  Photos later.


  1. Back to reality, eh? Sorry! Hope it's an easy return to work. Can't wait to see pictures of your new tops!

  2. I know what you mean...I need alot of black and white tops for I understand your need to make more! Glad you had a wonderful & productive vacation!

  3. Interesting info about how you handled the Pamela's Pattern top. Glad it worked out! Happy New Years to you, Linda
