I made another top out of cotton jersey fabric. This time in two colours: turquoise and taupe.

(I appologize for the bad photo quality due to the lack of good light at this time of the year.)
(And I think I should stop wearing that bra..., lol)





I am wearing it now and it is very comfortable.
(I have fibromyalgia and need comfortable clothes.)

I used a commercial pattern (Fashion Trends magazine, in Dutch, nr.11, model 14), but made a lot of changes. The pattern was for a fitted dress... As you can see, I didn't make a dress and I don't have the right body for a fitted pattern.

I'd love to hear what you think of it!

PS: I already cut out the fabric pieces for a second one, in taupe and black.

LOVELY! I also suffer from FMS so know where you are coming from with comfy clothes - you can't beat soft &stretchy for those days when you feel your body hates you. Gentle hugs!

Very nice! I like the length as well. It's so hard to get a shirt that is long enough!
You do such tidy work!

Great design and I like the color blocking style, too. Also agree with cackle on the length. Smiley

Thanks for the hug, Kookaloo_Starr!
And thanks for the compliments, everyone!
Yep, commercial clothes being made from synthetic fabrics and being too short or ill-fitted is why I started making my own.

That looks so comfy! I love the colors. Black and taupe will look great, too.
