NewLook 6735 was probably one of the first patterns I purchased when I began sewing garments for myself in 2013, so it was quite a surprise to see it's not out-of-print (OOP) and still readily available at the website. So many great patterns go OOP in short order. Wonder how they decide which to retain and which to let go? Hmmmm.
Blue Shibori Knit from Hobby Lobby that is still available online and I even saw it in my local store last week. Such fun to stand by the bolt 'wearing the fabric' and show the sweet lady who works in that department my 'coordinating' top!! She always asks me what I've been making and I love fabric stores/departments who have kind employees who really care about our craft. Anyway, it has a nice weight and I thought the fabric colors and pattern were kind of neat and different. Sewing by Shirley made a cute top out of the very same fabric you can see here.
Knit Neckband Tutorial that explains all this in much better detail. Also, below, with the top inside/out.... wanted to show you how I stabilized the shoulder seams with a piece of handmade bias binding simply pinned to the shoulder seam and top-stitched being careful to line up the stitching so it will look nice from the right side.
Happy Sewing All!!
EDITED TO ADD: Forgot to mention that I'm wearing the white Itch to Stitch Belize shorts in this post.
