Pink basic

Nothing exciting for today - just some basic knit top that works well with skirts or a pair of jeans. New Look 6150 is a faux wrap top with a bit of ruching along the shoulder and side seams. I made a sleeveless version as the runched sleeves looked rather stupid on me. Three  four (I forgot the back is in two pieces) pattern pieces make this a quick make. Fabric I used came from an op-shop - a source of quite a few pieces in my fabric stash. It's not too stretchy and it has slight metallic shine. It was a pain in the bum to cut but other than that it behaved quite well. I'll be making it again, probably with long sleeves as winter is coming. I might also get rid of the shoulder seam ruching.



  1. Nice basic top :) I'm busy trying to make more tops, I tend to sew more dresses.
