Third top for my summer project 333 capsule wardrobe

Third top for my summer project 333 capsule wardrobe

I’ve been sewing to fill any gaps in my project 333 summer capsule wardrobe. This is my third top and for a bit of a change it is using stretchy material. I taught myself to sew knits before wovens. Even though people say they are difficult to sew I thought they were worth learning first because they would be more forgiving to wear and I could get away with making garments which were fairly simple using seams and no zips……initially I was really scared of learning zips!
I used Sew U Home Stretch to learn about sewing stretch materials (it also has patterns to try) initially. I recently got The Colette Guide to Sewing Knits: Professional Techniques for Beautiful Everyday Garments which is a brilliant in depth guide. I tend to use an overlocker for seams and then a twin stretch needle and walking foot for hems etc.
I used New Look pattern 6807

So this is it- I kept the neckline fairly low so it could be worn off the shoulder over a vest top and then I use a brooch pin if I want to make the neck line higher and wear it alone.

This photo shows the top with the wiggle skirt I made.
