I saw this pattern and fell in love with it – The Promise.
It would cover my wobbly bits. And would be very nursing friendly in the future! (I love multi purpose tops)
I had never REALLY sewed anything for myself before (minus a few pairs of NOT.SO.GREAT. pajama pants….).
But I had been sewing a few successful projects for Little Mister A, so…
When, at a little, local, hole in the wall fabric shop (literally in a ladies garage) I found the PERFECT grey fabric – and it was on sale – I just HAD to buy it! Honestly, I have no idea what kind of fabric this is. It is slinky and flowy, and has great recovery.
I bought two meters.
Got home and bought The Promise pattern.
Requirements: 3 yards…..
I fished through my stash of fabric and came up empty handed for any knit fabric that would match. But I did find some gorgeous floral woven apparel fabric I had bought a few months prior to make a top.
After a quick ask on the DBD Facebook help page, the designer – Katie Anne Cook Wilson, confirmed that she thought making the Promise with a woven back was doable.
From there is was smooth sailing! The top came together quickly and I am so happy I did the floral backing. It has become one of my favorite tops to wear.
(The only other modification I made to the pattern was that I followed the hack to make into a pull over shirt without the side snaps.)
