Hi Everybody and Happy 2018!
I have to say that I actually made this garment back in December 2017, but I am just getting around to posting this.
I have to say that I love the Georgia top. I think it is so cute with the ruffles on the top.
The Georgia top was pretty easy to make. I did struggle a bit with getting my gathers perfect, I am a perfectionist, lol:)
I just bought a gathering foot for my machine to see if that helps. I have also seen that Clover has this new notion for gathering, I am going to have to try that as well.
Anyway back to the top. I used this ITY knit from Fabric Mart as I like my tops to not be bulcky.
I also made the work pants, but I will blog about those later. I used my cover stitch for my hems, but they just turned out okay.
I have been reading up on my cover stitch and found that wooly nylon works best in the lower looper. I just bought some of that and also some Maxi Lock Stretch Serger thread as I read that helps when sewing with knits as well.
It went together pretty easy and I didn’t have to do any adjustments. I did grade the pattern.
I am a Pear shape so I did a medium on top and graded out to XL at bottom.
I think this just took a couple days to put together.
In all, I like it and will wear it all winter!
Up next, the Jessica Dress from Mimi G as well!
Have to say that one is going well and coming together fast as well!
Until next time!
