MOT 5 & 6

Over the weekend, I managed to complete the last two tops of the MOT Sew-A-Long. It has been so much fun! I changed around the pattern choice for this fabric. I used an OOP S7013. My top does not really look like any of the view options on the envelope. I just took what I wanted from the pattern pieces and made a top with two-piece sleeves, it has a neck facing and top stitched hems. I used the sleeves from ViewA but did not leave the seam open nor did I make a drawstring closure. The front & back is from View F and the length of the top is about 1 inch longer than the pattern. This fabric has been in my stash for a very long time. I am glad I finally got a chance to use it.
My next top also OOP S5956. The fabric has been in stash for quite some time and I never really knew what to do with it because there was not even 1 1/2 yards of fabric. It was a piece I picked up probably from Joann's red tag section back before it became the place we'd always look for fabrics first (my daughter & I) when going to Joann's. Very quick and easy.











This is an up close view of draping on the front neck area of the top. When I described this top on the Month of Tops blog, I called it cowl neck. That just shows how old-school I am. LOL!
I had lots of fun participating in the Month of Tops Sew-A-Long thanks to Faye. Now to whip up a few bottoms for my tops!

Pretty tops and so in love with S7013... I must find that pattern.... it is imperative...lol. I have a glittery taupe knit fabric that would work well with that pattern. Thanks... off to go in search of S7013.

Calling it a cowl neck is not dated, I call it a cowl neck too! Cute tops!
