It's Tranquil

M6398 is a Misses/Women's Tunic that's close-fitted at bust. Okay, I can really prove that both ways right!



My double


Sizes: 8-24W
Fabric: Tranquil Blue Poly/Lycra Techno Knit from Fabric Mart

After looking at some of the pictures that were taken on this day, I realized that this Techno Knit is heavier than ITY and almost as heavy as some of the Scuba Knits that I've used. That being said, I've placed this fabric in the stable knit category. I'm sure the same pattern in the ITY knit that I've cut will have more drape.

Alterations: Removed about 2" from the hem as it was very long for me



Here we go! This top is here, here, and here.

All of the pieces were serged together including the sleeves, all of the edges, and the serged edges were turned under and topstitched. This was a very quick process. Another one has already been cut out and ready for the machine.

  1. Looking good Dorothy - very nice top. Heavier knits hide the lumps and bumps. I am glad you are on the road to recovery.
