Its the same fabric I used for the hoody cowl dress here:
Not sure what the fabric is but its kind of bonded and textured and synthetic and very warm - or for a T-shirt its warm. I was originally going to twin needle the hem so overlocked the edges just for neatness but decided actually I quite like the simplicity of this so thats it.
This is view D of Butterick B5562 again and without the collar. This pattern seems to be the top T-shirt pattern of the season for me right now.
I already made two other tops from this same pattern.
This one is completely different due to the fabric choice.
You can see my other versions here:
This is seriously a very quick make but I have worn it, washed it and worn it again in the same working week so a very good top I think.
I was not too sure about this fabric when I originally bought it, but it has made two very nice garments.
It was an ebay impulse bid and I won the auction! It is not realy my normal kind of fabric.
I do not mind synthetic lycra - as in workout type fabric and even things that can pretend to be lycra but are just polyester if you know what I mean.
When it arrived I was so unsure whether it was useable so just shows because something is synthetic and maybe not what you would normally buy it can work out well.
Anyway I need to make a few more winter tops so will be sesarching through my stash again now.
Other than that I made a Christmas cake.
It was baked in an Ikea silicon heart mould and was a bit of an experiment since I did not line it with baking paper although I did put a baking paper top on it while it baked for about 4 hours!
Its the first Christmas cake I have made in many years and now we are feeding it with brandy.
