Tessuti's Fave Top

A little while ago I made the "Our Fave Top" by Tessuti's Fabrics. I used a most lovely knit purchased whilst doing a Palmer Pletsch Workshop at Martin and Savage Fabrics last November. The fabric is a Rayon / Polyester blend with great drape and texture. Up until today, we have been experiencing very warm weather so I haven't felt like putting anything on with a sleeve, so my photos are on this lovely lady ....

The pattern is very easy. I added about 9cm to the overall hem - and I added a little width to the sleeve - where it tapered to fit snugly to forearm.
I shamelessly did not bother match the pattern at the side seam. I was concerned that the boat neck edge might be too wide or too deep at the back - but it wasn't! It drapes beautifully from a nicely fitting neck area.
This is a great pattern for the right fabric - something soft and drapey ... a great mid season staple!


  1. I've been thinking about making one of these too with some stripes I bought in Korea or a very light knit remnant also from Tessutis.

  2. Hello!!How are you doing? Still love reading your blog!it brings me back there!Here, so busy with the wedding prepartion, one month to go! Now I am sewing the flower girl dresses and I just love sewing again after a little while. I'll send you some pictures afterwards.
    The top you made is great, I made a poncho for the winter but actually that was that kind of top that I wanted, Thanks for the tip. I'll try later on.Big kisses to everybody down under!

  3. What lovely fabric! The top looks very stylish. I haven't made clothes for many years - seeing all your lovely creations makes me inspired to get back into some dress making.
