TGIFF - Ebony Top

One of my Bee Christmas gifts was a gift certificate to one of my LQS.  I splurged and bought the Ebony top pattern by Closet Case.

I hate having my photo taken, but it's really the only way to show the top, so here goes.


It flares out a little at the sides.


The back is longer than the front.


I purchased an inexpensive lightweight knit for my first attempt.  It's an easy pattern, but I do need to learn how to use my serger.


The longer back kept billowing up in the wind.



If you have a finish this week, consider sharing it at:

  1. You look great Anja and so does your top. It's an interesting pattern. It looks like it's worth the money . The dress looks awesome and so does the shorter Tee.

  12. I love your top! Well done. I have been playing again with the idea of making a "something". Me Made May does that to me, I see everybody's lovely hand made clothes and think, I would like to do that. Maybe I will!

  14. Your top looks great, and so you do! You always look so pretty in your pictures. Tip for learning to use the serger: when re-threading, do it in the order they say and if you only need to fix one thread, actually do all four (in the correct order).
