Asymmetrical Fashion Trip

How about a visit to New York, London, Paris or Rome?  All you have to do is wear this tunic and you’re there.  I didn’t even have to leave my back yard.

The fabric is a cotton jersey knit and it’s super cool and comfortable.  You can find it here.  I wore this outfit to work and everybody was asking “where did you find that top?”  I swear I get so much pleasure from that question.  It makes me all happy and warm inside.

For the tunic I used Simplicity 8059 View A.  You can find it here. I’ve been obsessed with high – low tops and dresses for the past 2 seasons.  I decided to switch things up a bit and go asymmetrical and I think I like it.

This was a very easy project.  Just sew , serge and use the twin needle for the double stitch  and you’re done.  I threw on a silver necklace just to create a bit of interest.  You don’t need to do much – I wanted to add a little bling.

I really like the banded neckline detail.  I think it takes this top up a notch.

The fabric is very forgiving and it has great recovery.  In other words, it snaps back and doesn’t stretch out.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you give this pattern and fabric a try.  I promise you will love it.  See you soon…..

  1. Congratulations Ve you are so deserving! You and that fabric gave a pattern I had overlooked sooooo. much style and interest that I think I want to make it too.

  2. Your top looks great! I like the asymmetrical look, but I worry it makes me look even shorter than I already am. Maybe it is time to give it a try!

  3. I love this top on you, and the fabric is to die for! I did a little hacking with this pattern when I made it. I had a great striped Jersey blend, and I wanted to have the stripes go the way of the hem, on the bias! Uhoh! So to control the stretch, underlined with very light weight ITY, not on the bias, and it turned out perfectly. I was by hand, and have done some little stitches here and there, hidden by the stripes, but it is very striking. As l am a Curvy Chick, it evens hides a little of the extra me! Thanks for sharing

  4. I love this top! I’ve been wanting to make something like this and you’ve inspired me to get it done!

  5. Really love the print words and I think the asymmetrical cut is a really nice refresh from the hi-lo. The sleeve length is also perfect! Great work on this pattern and inspiring us to sew!

  6. Beautiful top! I love sewing with knits because they are so quick & easy. This is definitely a top I’d like to incorporate into my fall/winter wardrobe! Thanks!

  7. Great top and I love an asymmetrical hemline. I’ve been making tanks with this same look. Great fabric and thanks for calling out a new-to-me fabric co.
