Thanks. It's funny that you mentioned the neckline and straps - I recut the back of the neckline for this top to make it a better fit and also cut the straps, too. Must be the material.

Here's my latest project. This is the first time this year that I have made a top that didn't use a knitted fabric. I have never used gauze fabric before, so this was another first - working with lace being the other first. I like how they both worked out together. This will not be my last time using either material.

After too many duds to count, I have now completed 3 successful projects in a row! This one is my favorite. It's simple, classy, and comfy. It's made using the Butterick 5327 pattern in 1 1/2 yards of t-shirt jersey/knit material.  This carried me through work all day and into the evening with my man.

Thanks everyone. I am very happy with this turnout. I have had my share of duds lately. lol

This is my second Simplicity 4075 top. I made one last year, but it was way too short on me - so I adapted it to fit my much smaller Sister. For this version, I added 8 inches to the midriff for length and then cut about 4 inches off the bottom once hemmed. I bought the fabric online at Fabric.com for $7.17. I've been getting a lot of comments on how this is a Pucci-esque print. I agree! Not bad for under $10 bucks. His tanks sell for $500 +.

While the version I made of this top is sleeveless, I used Butterick 5260's sleeve pattern and made it extra long, to go slightly over my wrists. I really love how the finished product looks.

Amazing work! There wasn't a project that I didn't like.

I do the same thing and just go with my own instructions from my head. lol.  I really love this issue, too. I've made 4 tops from this issue and am finishing up the dress from the cover. I plan on cutting it in half and then making a top and skirt, instead.

Nirauan - I'm not actually wearing a bra with this one, but I did make the armhole smaller and tighter than the pattern called for. I saw a few reviews that had the same complaint you just made. Actually, I omitted the sleeve bands altogether. They looked too floppy.  I just turned in the edges and topstitched.

This pattern is from the Burda World of Fashion Magazine in their July 2009 issue. Did you make yours from scratch or did you use a different pattern?

Here's my latest, finished top. A knit - asymmetrical top with elastic hem. This really did whip up fast. I used a pattern from the 07-2009 issue of Burda. I made the size 42. I am really happy with how this one turned out and plan to make at least one more (in a print fabric) before summer ends...of course living in San Diego will allow me a bit more time for wear.

Musefreak - no sewing machine. That's too bad. With all of the elastic shirring, this isn't one that can be done by hand (or at least, I don't think so).
