This is really cute Liana, a bit different from a usual shell top. Like the tip on the binding. Thanks

Very nice top. The neckline treatment is an interesting touch. How is this accomplished? I make a lot of tees and I'm always looking for ways to make them a little different.

Ooooh, that's a slick trick with the twisted binding! A little detail that I'm sure takes a while, but is QUITE worth it.

Re Becca said...
very cute! I may have to dig this one out. Yours turned out very well, the twisted binding is a nice decorative touch. Do you think this would work well in wovens?

I love that twisted binding finish. This looks like a great basic pattern.

Your top is wonderful...I really like the swooped up middle....thanks for the "twist" method tip on the binding.

Cute top, like the twisted binding.

This is lovely top on you, simple but distinctive. Thanks for that binding tip, I just saw it on a RTW T shirt in aboutique and thought it looked like a nice way to upgrade a simple shirt.

Liana said...
ReBecca, I think this would work just fine in a woven as well, but you would definitely want bias strips.

duplicate, sorry.

Great style, and lovely fit! I like the hem shaping a lot. Thanks for going through the details of your fitting process. Very educational.

Another winner, Luv the tip on the twisted binding. Less then a dollar a yd that's a double winner in my book.

What a really lovely top! Totally designer!

AndSewOn said...
Liana, I love that binding. I'm wondering -- how wide were your bias strips? And how did you finish the binding on the inside? Thanks so much.
5/8/07 10:24 PM
Liana said...
AndSewOn, I cut them 2" wide, since that's the width of the ruler I was using, and it seemed to be okay. I didn't turn it under on the inside since it's a knit, and it won't ravel.
