The Bella Knit Top Sewing Pattern

The Bella Knit Top Sewing Pattern

The Bella Knit Top

Another easy pattern to sew with a neckline twist!  I designed the Bella Knit Top sewing pattern to be sewn with knits for comfort and coordinate with A Touch of Couture Lace Embroidery Collection, Regardless if you add embroidery, this knit top is trendy and easy to sew!  slightly fitted in the bust area and looser in the waist and hip area with a flattering curved hemline.  Different than my other knit top patterns, this one has a v-neckline with facing instead of a ribbed collar band. 

Although there are two sleeve options, I named the pattern after the bell-like sleeve which is fitted in the bicep area and then bells out in the wrist area, hemmed with an elastic casing. 

I have sewn this version with rayon jersey knit for the body and mesh for the sleeve.  The short sleeve version offers a loose, flowing sleeve and a chiffon fabric is a great choice.  I am just finishing a few more Bella Knit Tops and will share photos next week with a few tutorials on sewing and embroidering this trendy top.

The Bella Knit Top sewing pattern is available in instant digital download format or the paper version with spiral notebook mailed to your home.  

 

NOTE:  The Bella Knit Top PDF version is included FREE with the The Touch of Couture Embroidery Collection.

Apron Sew Along

Apron Sew Along

Apron Sew Along

An apron is such a fun accessory to wear in the kitchen, at work, while dyeing fabrics, gardening, you name it!  I thought it would be so fun to sew an apron and each day have guests on the live show showing how to embellish with embroidery, quilting, applique, and more. 

 

I will be using Molly Madison’s Apron Pattern, but feel free to use any apron pattern you might have on hand.  Molly is a friend of mine and I just love the variations on her pattern as you see above.

Here is the schedule of live shows and I will include links to the live shows each morning:

 

Custom 4″ Zipper Case 

Reen Wilcoxson from Embroidery Garden will be showing us how to make a 4″ zipper case.  Here is the link to download the files.

It has been so fun taking over the Brother Sews Facebook and YouTube channel during this stay at home mandate!  I always like to find the positive and this has been the best, being able to hang out with you all virtually.  Many have asked where to find the replay’s, so I will be sure to post them here on my blog at the end of each day. 

So going back, we had an entire week of making pillow cases, embroiderying ideas, BES 4 Lettering tutorial, and more!  Here are all the replays:

 

Now that was fun!  I hope you are inspired to dig into your stash and make a few pillow cases 🙂  Next week the theme is spa and pampering, which we all need a little of right now.

Let me know if there is a specific lesson you might like in the upcoming live shows.
