The last garment of 2014

I've managed to squeeze in one more garment for 2014.  This top is super simple and a very quick sew.  It's Vogue 8962 - view B - the top with the large cowl neckline.  I bought this wonderful knit fabric from Stonemountain and Daughter in Berkeley, CA back in March of this year during a birthday fabric shopping trip.  



It's a fun knit with these gray loops that stick out from the rest of the fabric.  You can see a little of the loopy detail in the pic below.  

And here's the finished product!

The pattern envelope just doesn't do this pattern justice.  The back has a yoke on top and the bottom pieces are cut on the bias so they wrap around to the front.

There are no side seams - that's what I'm trying to show in this pic - not my imitation of a bird flapping - which is what it looks like.  


The cowl neck is quite large too - it almost covers my whole head!

It took me longer to cut out this top with lining up all of the loops and lines than it did to sew it together.

Drum roll please......  The final tally of stashbustin' comes to 48.75 yards since July!  That's not too bad!  We have alot of home improvement projects planned for next year so I'll be lucky if I can beat that total, but I'll give it a try.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Keep On Sewing!
