First things first. I am not a sewer. I am a quilter. However, when Island Batik generously sends you 2.5 yards of rayon I knew I wanted to make something with it. So I called my cousin Lisa and asked her what the easiest pattern to make with rayon would be. I was so thrilled that she sent me pictures and I chose Simplicity Pattern 1107. The rayon was different than cotton, but I found that if I set it carefully it worked quite nicely. Instead of making a hem I used a bias edging. I love this top! It could be a little longer so I could wear it with leggings, but it's a lot of fun. People tell me it looks like sunshine when I wear it to work!
And with a belt...
This is the gorgeous fabric from Island Batik.
I hope you get to quilt today!
It looks great!ReplyDelete
