The Seafarer Top

I FINALLY got the chance to sew something for myself.  I have been wanting to really since I started sewing a few years ago but never found a pattern that I LOVED and had to make. Basically, it was just easier to buy for myself.  

Cue, The Seafarer Top.  

I saw this top on a blog tour for the pattern and I had to have it!  So many different options, it can look like a like a completely different top each time you sew it.  Not to mention, it's another quick sew!  I made it within a nap time.  Gotta love that!

I got my knit from Girl Charlee. They have great knits!  All kinds of styles and colors, that are cute.  Which is hard to find for knits.  

For my top, I did the hemmed sleeve, with a neckband and waistband.  I did find that the pattern, for me, runs a little small.  I was hoping that it would come out a little looser.  I could have figured that out, had I taken my measurements before cutting and sewing; but I didn't, so the top fits a little snug, but totally wearable.  I bought another fabric to make this shirt out of, so at least I know for next time!
