Cute top! Thanks for the construction tips.

Very cute! I love your use of the metal clasps - I've had some in my stash for ages and never thought to use them on a knit top. I hear you with regard to poly knits. They are fine in the cooler months (of which there are about 2 here, lol) but, since I no longer work in a freezing cold office they are too hot any other time. So sad too because there are so many fantastic prints available! :-(

Beautiful. Thanks for all the tips, too. I'm wondering how my eos polyester fabrics will fare this summer, as well, having already reached (and probably past) "a certain age."

I have the same problem when hemming onionskin. I follow the technique that Marcy Tilton explains in Easy guide to sewing Tops, where she fuses a strip of knit interfacing to the hem to support it while you are stitching it. I have found out that if I use a zigzag stitch it works great and usually the print in this fabric conceals the stitching anyways..

What a pretty top -- the piping and the clasps are really nice extras. I agree with you about polyester knits -- they are just not comfortable in my climate. I rarely buy them anymore.

Pretty colors! I had this problem too with onionskin. I used Steam-A-Seam & didn't press with the iron before hemming.
