Loose Ends – Final

Yay, the last two tops are done and hanging in my closet! It always feels good to finish up a few UFOs. These are modified versions of OOP Kwik-Sew 2845, both in rayon/lycra. The first fabric is from Bestonlinefabrics (link in the sidebar). I LOVE the print!


This pretty solid came from Lucy’s Fabrics before Laura stopped selling fabric. Another one I wish I’d bought more of, sigh.


I’m going to work out now and then hopefully get started on that beautiful Burda Style skirt! Since it’s a tall size, I’m interested to see how much length I have to take off…

  1. thanks to the link to Laura’s Fabrics. I need to thank someone for the link for FOE too. Fashion sewing is truly dieing out in my home state. I can’t find these necessary items within 200 miles of me. I can find nice fabric, but notions are the tiny details that make a garment beautiful. I do appreciate the referral

    Dear Lord. Gigi – must you continue to make me drool? Love the tops (fabric)!

  3. Great tops, both of them. Nice work!

  4. I think you saved the best for last! Love both of these especially the print one. You must feel like you got a whole new wardrobe with all those pretty new tops now hanging in your closet.

  5. Wow, what an inspiration. Even your UFOs are gorgeous. 🙂

    These are such nice T’s! I just love that pattern, I wish Kwik Sew would bring it back! Wish even more I could wear this style…..but doesn’t look right on me – looks great on you! Thanks for sharing!

    Wow, you really crank these out don’t you. They are all really nice. One that nice would take me a week and then I would preen and brag about it for two weeks.

  9. I loved this top when you made a few last year. the top fabric is perfect.

  10. Oh my, more great knit tops. I love the grey print, but they are all super nice.

  11. Gigi, you continue to amaze me. I love both tops.

  12. Gigi this has been a great run! I love them all.

  13. Gigi..both tops are so cool ! I always enjoy seeing what you have been up to 🙂

    *Sniff sniff* I could sob–that’s exactly the top I am dying to make as a postpartum nursing top (baby #2 due in August) because it’s stretchy and the elastic neckline jumps right back into place, but exH threw the pattern out when he moved out. *Wah!* Gigi you inspired me for it 🙂 I wouldn’t have noticed the pattern without out, and it’s so very pretty and flattering. The empire line is stunning on a full-busted petite.
