Before I started I read the pattern and noticed this was going to be a nice, easy sew. The Parisian Top has no hidden difficulties, it's a straightforward sew accompanied by a clear tutorial with tips for sewing knits. The gathered sleeves and the collar give this pattern just that little bit extra, while wearing a nice comfy tee.
I decided to add a bit of a challenge and ordered some scuba fabric. I've never worked with scuba before and I crossed my fingers hoping it wouldn't be to stiff to use for this top.
Sewing scuba was a breeze actually, it has stretch but isn't slippery and has a good recovery, I had my top finished in no-time.
The pattern comes in a wide size range with a measurements table. After measuring I made a size S and lengthened the top with 5 cm. Perfect fit!
So tell me, are you sewing along with the Selfish Sewing Week? What are you working on?
