~ easy bitsy top

Thank you all for leaving comments on the coverstitch machine question. I really appreciate every input....... I still keep my fingers crossed, our anniversary is coming soon, that might be an opportunity to ask for a new toy.........lol,....
In another news, I recently made an easy top, just to jump start my mojo. It's a simple knit blouse, no major alteration except for lengthening of the body. It├Ęs similar to this blouse from tall girl shop on sale for $39:88.
Coutesy : Tallgirlshop.com
My version here
Without belt
Fabric: Rayon-Jersey ($3:00)
Pattern: Newlook 6807 ($1.99)
Notion: From stash
Time : Less than 2 hrs
Skill: Priceless

With belt
I guess I will wear mine with belt, I love the feel of the fabric and the style is trendy as well.
Full review on PR .
BTW, I widened the post area of my blog using an excellent code I got from this site. The only modification I made to this code is I changed the $startside with left.
Thank you ids for this excellent tutorial.

You all have a lovely week ~Aminat

  5. Aminat, that's an great looking top for so little effort! I have this pattern as well, and still have not resumed sewing since last month. Maybe my mojo will respond to this as well...

  7. Very Cute! I like how you compared the cost of the inspiration top, to the cost of yours. BTW, your version is much cuter!

  8. I love your version and it does look nice with a belt. I'm trying to wear things loose without always adding a belt but I'll likely wear it with a belt in the end.
