Oops, I Did It Again



So last time I wrote about this pattern, I talked about putting it away. Well, I did. For a while. Until I realized the top I want to live in this summer is the rayon/Lycra knit version I made in May (2nd from right in the photo below). Over the weekend I pulled out the pattern again and cut out another rayon/Lycra knit. Tonight I sewed up the hems to finish it. I do still wear them all, so the new one will be added to the rotation. And if you're wondering, that little flower on the "apex" area of Zillie thankfully does not hit *me* in the same place.



The pattern, in case you don't have it memorized yet, is Simplicity 4122, below (neckline modified):

  1. Another nice tee! Even knowing that you used the same pattern it's still hard to tell they are all from the same pattern.

  2. Hey, why mess with a good thing - you have a top you love so it's great to keep making it! I think you should go for an even half dozen!

  5. Another pretty top! It's great that you have the creativeness (is that a word)??? to make changes to a pattern to make it look completely different.

  7. Some tops just wear better than others. It looks great,wears great,looks so different in different fabric prints so now you can just crank them out. 99% of us look at those tops and wish we could get that pattern fitted and crank them out as well. mssewcrazy

  8. There's nothing wrong with making a top again and again in wonderful colors/prints that you feel fantastic wearing!

  9. Isn't rayon lycra the most wonderful fabric?! No wonder you want to live in it every day. Yet another great looking T-shirt.

  11. Wow, how come I don't have this pattern?? Those are some cute tops!!

    And hell yeah I was in LOVE with Rob Lowe!!! St. Elmo's Fire?? I probably still have all the dialogue memorized. I was def. Molly in TBC though, of course. ;) I was a goody goody and I fell hard for the bad boy Judd too (and then felt guilty about it) HA!

    Tried to email and forgot I lost all my emails when the computer crashed. Dangit.

  12. Like you I tend to gravitate toward what is comfortable to wear. This top is just great like all the others. I love your blog!

  13. Why mess with a classic? And the non-sewing folk--Muggles--they usually can't tell if one has remade a pattern, esp if using a print. Nice to have a guaranteed hit out of the ballpark, no? You know you'll wear it, so hey! Can't tell you how many times I remade a Burda pants pattern, and no Muggle noticed.

  14. Great top. Sometimes you just find that perfect top.

  15. I know this is off topic, but how do i know if a sewing machine has an elastic stitch?

    thank you!

Thank you for each and every comment. I appreciate them all, but I have to be honest and let you know that I'm usually bad about answering questions. I hope you understand that there just isn't enough time in the day to do everything I want to do.
