Simplicity and EOS

Finally finding some sewing mojo!  I want to sew some tops that are not knits.  I love sewing knits.  I have some nice woven fabrics that are calling my name and several patterns that are for woven tops.

This is a Italian drapey with diamond weave jacquard from Emma One Sock that I purchased in March 2013. I think that this has aged enough in the stash now.  I remember when I bought it I thought it was going to be heavier and set it aside as I knew it was not the right fabric for the project I had in mind.

The pattern was acquired in 2015.  I decided to make View B which is the floral one in the picture above.  I also want to try the square neck one that the model is wearing in the future.  The great thing about this pattern is it has separate pieces for cup sizes-b,c and d.

The great thing about this fabric is both sides are usable so I am using the camel color as the center front and center back pieces, with the black side as the side front and back pieces.  

I have sewn all the front and back pieces together.  I am going to baste the shoulder and side seams next for fit adjustments.  I think this pattern has quite a bit of ease and probably could have used size 14 through out.

More updates to follow!


  1. I can't wait to see the finished top!

  2. I look forward to seeing the top. I also am wanting to use some woven fabric's . Let us know how you like this pattern.

  3. Wonderful fabric to use - love the double sided options. I also have this top out to try - I'm trying to get some of my mojo back by stitching up some of the stash into some new tops. I'll keep my eye on your progress!

    1. I am making slow progress as work always gets in the way of sewing fun.
