Happy New Year all!
It’s been such a long time since I’ve posted on the Mood Sewing Network. I’m very happy to be back!
Today I’m showcasing an unusual fabric, multicolor french cotton jersey (FC19834). At least it’s unusual for me. I found it months ago while searching the Mood online store. It has two layers of fabric fused together. The top layer has a burn out affect with some parts of it unattached to the under layer. Too bad it is no longer available, but there are other options to chose from. I paired this unusual textile with a Katherine Tilton top, Butterick 5925.
This pattern is described as: MISSES’ TOP: Pullover top has neckline and pocket variations, seam detail, and shaped hemline. A: slightly draped neck and pocket bands. B: pocket binding. A and B: semi-fitted, stitched hems. C and D: loose-fitting, hem band, and narrow hem. B, C and D: neck binding. Wrong side shows on hemlines, and C and D pocket openings. I make view C. The sizes available are X-small to XX-large.
|Seaming along the shoulder blade.|
|Unfinished lower edge of the center front.|
The pattern looks like the drawing on the envelope. The instructions were easy to follow, standard for the big four. The only part that did not translate well into this fabric were the pockets. I could have been me, but I think it was the fabric.
When I purchased this pattern, I was looking for relaxed fit wardrobe options. This one was good. It’s loose fitting and great with leggings or slim fitting jeans. Excellent weekend outfit.
The only change I made in the construction was to have the right side of the pockets exposed.
I’m not opposed to making this top again, and I do recommend it to others.
This was a very interesting fabric to try. It’s so unlike me, 😉 but a great option for this Katherine Tilton top.
