Once again, I’ve made a Gertie knit top! I don’t have any tops in this color and I found some cheap fabric, so why not? May 30th was also my blog’s two year anniversary!
I purchased this thin, 50/50 poly-cotton sweater knit from Hancock Fabrics last week for $5. As cozy as the knit is, it’s not to be worn on a humid day! Seriously terrible humidity on Saturday. I didn’t have much fabric so I shortened the sleeves by 3 inches. They were supposed to be 3/4 by the way.
I’m extremely proud of the neckline on this! In the past I’ve had issues with wavy necklines so this is a big deal for me.
I did a knit FBA! The wrinkle is still there but it’s preferable to my previous tops. Everything is a learning experience and I’m ok with that, although it sometimes gets frustrating. Until next time, happy stitching!
