V-Neck Jersey Knit Top with Flowers

Sewing v-neck jersey knit top

The “I have nothing to wear!” war cry sounds again.

I have been so busy painting and doing things around the apartment that my very frugal wardrobe has all but disintegrated. I have a lot of fabric that I have set aside for myself, but haven’t found the time to do anything about it.

Get inspired to make your own v-neck jersey knit top with easy-to-make flowers. It’s the perfect lazy summer top.

But let me share with you something I sewed a while ago. It’s a v-neck tee that I made out of some rib knit I found some super-cheap fabric online.

Back to my tee. The fabric I used is the Poorboy Rib Knit in gray. It is a very soft, stretchy knit, but a serger is a must for this type of fabric. I have tried sewing it without one and there are only limited things that can be done without a serger. I decided to leave the edge on the sleeves and bottom without a hem. I liked the look of the serged edge.

Anyway, as I said, I made this one a while ago, I just didn’t show you because it looked so plain, but I had a little accident and spilled something near the neck. I grabbed some scraps of the same fabric and made some flowers (circles stitched together) and leaves and sewed them around the neck, covering the stain. I don’t know why I didn’t do this from the start, it looks a lot better now.

I already finished another top from the remaining yard I had, but I didn’t have time to make photos. I’ll show you later this week.

And I noticed today that I have a disproportionate amount of gray clothes. Am I the only one that likes dressing in gray?

    Love your tee and the little flowery detail at the neckline is really cute!I too like to wear grey and it suits my complexion very well.

  6. Pretty tee :)I like wearing grey too – mixing different shades of grey is cool.

  7. I love and wear a lot of gray. In the summer when I am tan it compliments my skin. In the winter when I am pasty white with yellow undertones to my skin, it successfully makes me look alive. It's staple color in my teacher clothes and my casual clothes!:)
