I need more tops!


I've had this fabric pulled out for over a week, but haven't had a chance to do anything with it. I knew I wanted to make some quick and easy tops, so I decided on this poy jersey knit fabric, but did not know what I was going to do with it. I only had about a yard and an eighth, so I started looking through my patterns. Then I remembered this one (NL 6731) and decided to go for it. I'm so glad I had already made this before and did not have to do any alterations. I practically made the whole thing on my serger and used the coverstitch machine to do the hem and armholes. I'm still figuring out how to use the coverstitch and have to admit that I have not used it much. I think the more I use it, the more comfortable I will get with it.
I'm so happy because I have this week off work. Our district always takes a week off in October. I was hoping to get a lot of sewing done, but since my husband took this week off too, I doubt I will get nearly as much done in the sewing department as I'd like to. I'm still hoping to get more done this week than I have in the last few weeks, so hopefully you will see some new pieces coming out soon.

Love the top, and the instant gratification part of it.
