Today I decided to finally make myself a top with my jellyfish fabric.
Their knits are 95% cotton and 5% spandex with a 200gsm weight. They also have this fabric in a rainbow version. Which I also have and used to make an infinity scarf.
I decided to use Simplicity pattern 1323 and Style B. I already made this top once and was very happy with how it turned out, but wanted to make a few changes to how the next one was sewn together.
The pattern weights I am using are large metal washers. My aunt made me a set that she covered in ribbon. I needed more, so I made a set and covered them using the selvages of fabric I had used recently.
I then cut the sleeves. I made them about 3/4 length even though I plan to wear this top during the summer with white pants. It is always cold in the office I work in and rather be a little uncomfortable for the short time I'm outside than to be freezing inside at work all day.
I debated between cover-stitching the hem or doing a rolled hem.
I decided to go the easy way out and do a rolled hem. It's a lot of hem to do!
