Geometric Bliss One Hour Top
Tuesday, March 17, 2015
Happy Tuesday! Last Friday we had a beautiful Spring day, so I took advantage of the warm weather and snapped some photos of a few recent finishes. One of those is a successful sewn knit garment! I have never had great luck working with knits, but this one came together nice and easy!
Art Gallery Fabrics has started including knits and voiles from each collection to go along with the usual quilting cotton. I have been scared to cut into my knits from Geometric Bliss, but the time came to finally get on with it and try! I thought the One Hour Top by Fancy Tiger Crafts seemed like a pretty painless sew. Plus, it's free, so that's a bonus!
Print is Radical Blooms Blush from my Geometric Bliss collection.
I made the XS/S size, but did have to trim some away from both sides as it was quite large. It's supposed to be a pretty loose fit, but it was comically big, so trimming was necessary!
I sewed the majority of the top on my Juki MO654DE Serger. To finish the neckline, hem, and sleeves I used a stretch twin needle with Aurifil 50wt #2024 in the top and wooly nylon in the bobbin. It was a good excuse to dust off my backup machine!
Look, I'm a bat! I can fly! (maybe not, haha!)
I don't know what I was so afraid of. These knits are so buttery and soft, and they sewed up great! I want to tackle a simple t-shirt next. Perhaps a knit Scout Tee!
