Textile Studio 1201

Hi everyone!  I’ve had a tough time finding my sewing mojo, but I’m creeping along.  I’m trying hard to finish my linen Rucci dress.  It’s a slow process, but I am reaching the zipper stage, finally.  I took a quick break from it in hopes of jumpstarting my motivation.  I’ve been really wanting something in lace (as evidence from my Pinterest board) :

This taupe top is my favorite.

I’d love a lace dress, but I know I’ll get more wear out of a top.  I dug into my pattern stash and found Textile Studio Basic Top #1201

In a few hours time, I made this top from some stretch lace from Gail K’s:

I finished the neck edge with a piece of selvage, and cut the sleeves, front, and back so that the hem would be at the selvage.  It’s all sewn with French seams.

Just what I wanted:  comfy casual, in lace!
