I finally did it.... My first Monthly Challenge in Knit

Binding V Neckline
Finally did it in Knit... My first monthly challenge (May), and I am a very happy camper.  Cut, tweak the pattern, sew and completed all in one day. I actually noticed,  I completed this blouse in 9 hours.  It was  a smooth sailing on the sewing machine, don't you love it when you are sewing and everything is falling or so stitching in the right place.  I had a bit of trouble with the binding for the neck area.  But, I am taking an online class for interfacing, so my skills should improve by the next time I am up to the challenge of binding a V neckline.   

I bought the fabric at my locate Joann's and the patterns is from my HUGE stash of patterns- Simplicity 1916. Fabric is very stretchy in rayon blend .

Check out my tweaks of the pattern at my blog:


  1. Congrats on your first make for MAGAM. Looks great, and you did a good job of making the neckline work.

  2. Lyric ooohing and ahhhing at the soft, pretty colors. Kudos on conquering the knit.

  3. You did a good job with first time sewing knits. As you continue to sew knits, you will get more and more confident in what you are doing. Your top looks very nice.
