sewing with knits

another scoop top

Scoop Top, it rocks.  I made another!  This time I had gotten a super soft knit from Girl Charlee.  It’s dreamy.

Pretty much the same as last time.  I love how quick this shirt is to sew.  I kind of feel spoiled with knits. I finished this one morning and wore it the rest of the day, just like last time.  Now it’s been washed and I’m ready to wear it again!

Instead of hemming the sleeves this time I just added another band, similar to how the neckline is finished.

Gotta love it!

Hope you had a great weekend.  It’s been rain rain rain for days here, come on sun!

    Lovely! It looks so comfy! We’re in Iowa and it’s been SO rainy here too. I’ve wanted to make this top but am nervous, big people clothes still scare me! 🙂

    I’m yet to try one of these but it looks great. I love the armband variation. Must do it 🙂

  3. I love the arm band idea! This pattern is great…I’ve made one so far and plan to make many more!

    It is really cute, but I can tell you need to take in the side seams a little bit to flatter your waist better. I’m not talking super fitted, but just a bit! It obscures how tiny you are.

      true! I didn’t even notice that until I look at the pictures again. 🙂

    Smart smart lady, I love the arm bands! It looks awesome! And I’d agree with Jenny up there – the more I’m seeing it sewn, the more I’m realizing the pattern is closer to a medium and you’re definitely a small! But hey, everyone likes their shirts to fit a bit differently, and drapey is good sometimes too, right? Just even more comfortable that way! 😉

      I think it’s the horizontal stripes too! ha! It’s weird, I do have a bigger waist proportionally to my hips though.

  6. Vanessa says:

    AH! That is so cute! I really like the bands on the sleeves too – good idea!

  7. Cindy says:

    Really cute, Anna! Everything you make looks adorable on you! Love the idea for the sleeves!

  8. Oh cuteness! I like the scooped hem at the back. Did the other one have that? Probably why it’s called the scooped top isn’t it…der!

    I love what you did to the sleeves! Cute!

  10. Looks great! I’m keen to sew more with knits, I’ll have to check out Girl Charlee. I think the shape of this tee would really work for me so I’ll give it a go!

  11. You look really great in this shirt! that neckline is neat, and love how you finished the sleeves…instant gratification, that’s the best feeling!

    it looks great. I’m glad to tread that you enjoy sewing with knits. I sewed some pants for my little one and had a lot of trouble. My sewing machine missed stitches, the upper thread broke… I played around with thread tension, put a new needle in there (special needles), had quality thread and used an overlock stitch on my machine. I reduced the foot pressure. But I didn’t find out what went wrong. Any tips?
