Orange Swirls

I’ve got a new top!

This fabric was purchased from Cabramatta in May last year and has been tempting me every since to make it up.

I have again made another version of KS 3740, and this time I have used the base I adjusted back here.

One thing I forget to check with was the amount of stretch this fabric had and it just felt a bit snug when I first made it a week ago.

So during the week, I unpicked the 4 thread overlock on the side seams and added a 4cm tapered gusset to the side seam.

Thankfully with the busy print it is hard to see.

I can see this top getting quite a bit of wear during winter!

  1. I was looking at a fitted top pattern the other day, that had gussets at the bottom of all the vertical seams as part of the design. I thought it was really interesting. Great looking top in a fun print!. From some of the other comments, I am getting the idea you have tights in the same print. I would love to see them.


  2. I had to look twice – and very closely – to see that gusset. Love the top and as you know I have serious fabric envy. So wish I had purchased some of this. It looks fabulous on you – but where are the tights?
