Oooh I love a good TNT. Your makes with this one are fantastic. I especially love the first two. I'm a big fan of orange and yellow right now, but those top colours just look lovely on you.
Thanks Debbie! I sew so much blue, the orange is pleasant change!
They are all awesome! I've got this pattern. This is motivation to make it up!
Thanks, Liza Jane. It IS a great pattern. Very fun to make variations.
These are all great versions. I can see why they are getting great wear this summer.
Thanks, Maria. It's nice to have a comfortable go-to garment that's not too basic.
These are great! I love your fabric combinations. To me, that is the hardest part! I am trying to cut out a top right now and have been changing my mind on fabric for 2 days! lol One of my girls is always going for the fabric I choose for myself. How can we have the same taste? She is 10 and I'm 46! LOL
Thanks Shirley Ann! I guess you just have good taste, haha.
You are right - these are a great shape! The zig zag dress in particular appeals to me. I wasn't aware of this pattern but I will have a look at it. I think it is a better shape than any of the knit dresses I have been considering. Have a happy summer in your self mades!
Thanks, Philippa! Yes, it's a good shape for self-consciousless wear :)
They all look great.
I love this pattern and your interpretations!
Thanks, Uta! These were fun to make.
Great makes Joy! It's a great idea to reuse a pattern you like. The design looks great on you!
Thanks, Silvia. It's definitely faster to remake a pattern you already know works.
They all look great, if I were picking a favorite its the orange zig zag the best in the dresses :O). Both the tops are cute too, cant decide which fabric I like best I like them both!
Thanks, Texan. I was just wearing the orange one today. In the end, I like the blue top best as the fabric is a better quality. Sometimes you don't know until you've washed and worn them a bit.
Wow, these dresses (and tops) are so pretty! The blue top and the purple dress are my favorite. So nice!
Thanks, Michal! I think the purple dress is my favorite (:
Love the cut-on sleeves
I agree - they're a nice variation on the theme.
I love all your versions, Joy! It's really a great pattern isn't it? I've been wearing mine quite a bit too.;)
Thanks, Cindy. I've been enjoying all my versions this summer. But summer's on it's way out now....will have to switch to song long-sleeve trifectas, I guess.
I love the orange version, and this pattern has a great shape on you.
Thanks, Elizabeth. I love the chevrons.
I love your tops and dresses here :) You always have such great combinations of knits. The fit is great and I'd reach for these all summer too! Great for chasing kids ;-)
Thanks, Kristin. You're right - great for chasing kids (:
They are all fantastic! I really love the top. And it's a great idea pumping them out. I just finished a dress for a wedding that's about to get a more casual version and a LBD version. So you've reaffirmed my decision! :)
Thanks, Nakisha! I do a lot of duplicates back to back (mostly for the kids, though). For some reason, it goes so much faster with the sewing steps fresh in my mind, even if I have to change threads.
Sorry to add word verification. Too much spam lately....
