I needed a cape break. Don't judge me. I rarely have multiple projects going. I like to complete one thing before I tackle another. This time though I just wanted a switch from labour intensive to easy peasy.
I took my standard TNT aline pattern with yoke for a woven and converted it for a knit with a simple elastic waist (sans yoke). Using a black ponti knit, I sewed it up, It's nothing special but it is an easy wearing skirt for cooler weather. Total time: 3 hours. Cost: $12.
I had about 1.5m of the ponti left so I did up a top (Linda McPhee) for mom that I picked up while at the Creativ Festival: #422 Linda's Best Dress and Top. Mom had made a request for a copy of an existing top and this pattern really seemed to fit the bill. I ran 5/8 strips of interfacing around the neck and shoulders to prevent any stretching, zigzagged the seams, and twin needled the hems. I really really liked working with this material, and I don't usually enjoy knits. Total time: 3hrs. Cost: $12.
