Glittery Jersey

I mentioned in this post that I have started working on my Evening Collection for the 2nd half of my SWAP.

My wardrobe has very little evening styled garments in it, and during the year I do have a number of dressy occasions to attend and this hopefully will reduce the mad sewing for an event for a while.

When Ann from Gorgeous Fabrics posted her Gala Top I quickly popped over to her online shop and found some fabric named Disco Glam Jersey – Bronze and just had to have it.  Luckily my boss was in the USA at the time and he so kindly agreed to be my courier. 

When this arrived, I knew exactly what it would be, it has such a wonderful drape! 
Another KS 3740 the wonderful cowl top, but this time I have made it sleeveless.
For this version I have:
  • taken out 1cm (3/8″) from the underarm to tapering back to nothing 4cm (1 1/2″) lower
  • as the fabric has a bit of weight to it, I have added a ribbon across the back neck to keep it from falling off my shoulders.
So here is my first top for the Evening Collection of my SWAP.

Stash Out:  4.95m
Stash In:  0

  1. Absolutely glamorous, and the perfect design for that gorgeous fabric. You have the most wonderful eye for colours. You pick all my favourites for your creations :)Looks fabulous with your white jeans too.


  2. Now that is stunning fabric! I like the combo of sleeveless and cowl neck. Nice about adding the ribbon support – I'll have to tuck that away in my tips-n-tricks bank. Well done!


  3. Totally glam, and very versatile. I like the idea of including evening wear in a SWAP. I'm very random about special occasion pieces. They tend to be one-off pieces that don't integrate well with other parts of my wardrobe. You've definitely got me thinking!
