Feathers Flights // Sewing Blog: Polka Dots and Mint Top


Polka Dots and Mint Top

I've had this polka dot knit fabric for awhile and could never find the perfect project. Until I found this mint ribbing and thought the mint would set off the navy perfectly. I decided to make a top instead of a skirt or dress because I'm feeling a little tired of the shirts I have.
I just traced the outline of another shirt I had and am pretty happy with the fit. I think it will be one of those shirts that work for now, pregnancy, and post-pregnancy/nursing. Hopefully mint won't disappear from the fashion world soon.
I struggled a little with the length of the ribbing on the neckline and had to do it twice. Bleh. But now I am happy I redid it instead of leaving it.
My knit double needle broke right as I started the topstitching around the neckline. The last thing I had to do to be finished! I just sewed two stitches next to each other and am still looking for a replacement.
