Lovely blouse, neat neckline.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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?

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.

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.
