The first one I made was Kwik Sew 2565, which I must have made about a hundred times by now.
But why not? It's a great pattern that I've already tweaked to my liking.The fabric is a really nice rayon(?) knit from Casual Elegance. It has a good drape, and is thicker than most rayon knits. But before I got sold on all that, I just loved the watercolor animal print. Just beautiful, and can be worn with just about anything.
Umm, yes, the print is a little off center, but oh well. I still like it, and as Ann says, "This is a summer tee, so the slightly off-center placement of the major motif on the front is just fine."
The other one is the Eureka Top from TSW.
I have mixed feelings about it, because dang! The sizing is huge. I cut out my usual Small/Medium mix for this shirt and it's enormous. I am going to try again in a straight Small to see if I like it better. At least it will be comfortable to wear in the heat.
For this, I used another rayon knit that I found at Joann's a couple of years ago. On first glance, it looks like a floral but it's really a skull print.
It's thinner than the Casual Elegance fabric and a more cotton-y look and feel.
Here it is styled like all the shirts you've been seeing lately in fashion shots.
What's with that anyway? Here it is loose. See? It's big.
I have another project underway that I hope to have finished soon, a border print skirt. And there's also that repeat of the Eureka pattern.
