Purple Passion

New Workout top!!!

Inspired by another blogger, I decided to give this workout top a try.  I really liked the two toned color of the sleeve and look how it came together.

I am so happy with my new skill! Not only is it relaxing; I can get a nice outfit out of it too.  This Patten is New Look 6230. I had to make an adjustment to the bust area because you know…. I need me some room! I then followed a smaller pattern size for the waist and the hip area.  So I should never have feared doing a Full Bust Adjustment.  With stretch knits, I just have to add more room on the top and cut the wait in to get my unique shape.  I like this pattern and I will adjust the armhole sightly, then use it for my knit dresses.

Not only did I master this pattern, I also pulled out my Singer QuantumLock cover lock serger!  I’ve had this machine for 6 years and never used it because it was “too hard” to thread. But I spent 3 hours trying to figure it out.  this machine is out of this world!  This makes the hem of my top look very professional. On the outside of the top, there is a double stitch, and on the inside it is overlocked…. Very nice!

Believe it! Live it! Be it!
