YummyMummy, yes rayon/lycra jersey is fine in the wash, as long as you pre-wash twice. It's a much more stable fabric these days than it use to be. I also toss it in a hot dryer to be sure it has done all the shrinking it's going to do beforehand.

I think you just answered the burning question: what shall I trace this weekend? Your results are so inspiring.....

Yay! "Kath and Kim" references!!!!! I'm glad I'm not the only American who 'lerves" that show! "And by the way, I do "lerve" your shirts!!!

Another great top. Your neckline looks so professional.

there are all pretty fabrics for your tops, Belinda, the coverstitch neckline looks so RTW. Is rayon/lycra OK to go in the regular wash?

Your new tops are just as lovely as the first one. I've made this one three times already too.

Perfect - fit, colour, finish. This one's not just a keeper, it's a make-several-copies-in-case-you-lose-the-master!

Fabulous fit! Thank you so much for letting us know the sleeve from last year's OW fits on this t-shirt. Good to know!!

Great looking top, and it fits beautifully.

Great t shirt, beautiful fabric. Thanks for the tip about the washaway stabilizer.
MelissaB in WA said... (7/3/07 1:11 AM) Reply
Pretty top Belinda! Nice to know the sleeve from the first woman's issue fits. I love your fabric choice too! :-)

Levone, I stitched a piece of washaway stabiliser behind the gathers so they wouldn't shift when run through the binder. I wrote a post on my blog about this - Sew4Fun Blog

Nice tee Belinda! Love that fabric too.

Wonderful top.
CherylStillSews said... (7/2/07 5:50 PM) Reply
Great tee. I bought some of this fabric after your last review and I love it.
Mufffet said... (7/2/07 4:38 PM) Reply the fit, the style and the fabric. I love that the armhole is in a good place on Ottobre patterns - nice and high! I have a top from this issue cut out and this time I am hoping I can use it as is with just petiting. So I did that and now we'll see.

a wonderful top, it fits to a tee!!!
bunz said... (7/2/07 12:10 PM) Reply
And very pretty colors for you!

Very nice. This looks like a great Tee pattern and you have gotten a perfect fit.
Levone said... (7/2/07 10:14 AM) Reply
Great looking tee....I have this one traced and ready to go, although I think I better go up a size as well. Also thanks for mentioning you didn't use the binding piece provided. For some reason, I thought since there were gathers I wouldn't be able to apply binding via the coverstitch. Did you use something to hold the gathers while you applied the binding?
Sherril Miller said... (7/2/07 10:04 AM) Reply
Long sleeves, great idea. This is my current favorite t-shirt pattern. I just made two and have another already cut. Going up a size worked out nice as you have a great fit and love the fabric too.

Great looking T with lots of potential.

I wish I had a Kath & Kim reference like Vonnevo, so I'll just say great fit and looks good. I wish I was better at measuring and getting it right!
Vonnevo said... (7/2/07 8:31 AM) Reply
Noice Belinda :))
scrappycat said... (7/2/07 7:27 AM) Reply
Very nice! The neckline does look just right. I am always searching for a neckline that is not too low.
