One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other
Can you tell the difference between the tops above? I will give you a clue....the top with the sleeves that are too long isn't for me!
I have been on a tee making bender lately. The first tee made during my tee working bee, is another Jalie 3352. I wanted a relaxed fitting tee that I could wear to work and this one fits nicely without clinging. Once again I used the neckline from Tessuti Alexa. The fabric I chose is a lovely merino blend from The Fabric Store. I bought this fabric in their end of winter sale last year. While the resulting top is a triumph, it wasn't until after I had put the neckband on that I realised that this fabric is offgrain which makes my neckband look a little odd! Initially this annoyed me beyond belief but it is quite amazing how a few wears and time heals all wounds.
My second spot merino top is my second favourite, Tessuti Alexa. I do love this pattern. This top I made from the leftovers from tee number one as a gift for Courteney. I cut this top very carefully, lining up those tiny blue spots. Cutting this out at night just about did my head in and at the end of it I really was seeing spots. Both tops were hemmed and the sleeves and neckbands finished with a twin needle.
Both of these tops have been worn but not together, never together, that is not cool!
