I thought I would share a little garmet sewing in between the Let It Snow QAL posts.  Last December, I finished this top and forgot to share it.  It’s too good of a pattern to forget to share, so I wanted to take time to do that today.


The pattern is called Bethiou.  It’s a really easy pattern to sew, with fun details.  It would also be really quick to make, though mine took a little longer because I wanted to fussy cut the stripes.  My favorite part of the pattern is the back.  The details are just really cute and you know how I love a raglan sleeve.  I just love when I don’t have to set in a sleeve.  It’s an easy piece to layer too, for when the weather is colder.

If you are interested in the pattern, I purchased it from IndieSew.  I also purchased the fabric there too, though it is gone now.  You can view the pattern here.  I will definitely be making this one again!

Have a great weekend!  I’ll be back early next week to share the next step in the QAL.

    It looks like a knit fabric right? If so how did you get your hem to lay so nice and flat, mine always seems to stretch when I stitch it.

    • I have a couple things that help me get my hems to lay flat – thanks to some tips that my Mom shared with me.
      1. A Stretch Twin Needle
      2. Using a small strip of stretch fusible interfacing along the edge of the hem.
      3. Lots of Steam!!! (the same goes for my quilting 😉 )

    Great top — and that scarf!! Just the right touch. Is it an infinity scarf? I’ll bet you knitted it, right?

    Heather…this could totally be a Bronco’s shirt. Love the orange.

    Of course you had to fussy cut the stripes! Nice job!

    Dear Heather,
    Greetings from “Down Under” ie Melbourne Australia where it is sunny & warm.
    I haven’t replied before, but I do enjoy your posts & loved the striped top, tho’ it is probably a bit beyond my skill level (or more likely patience level) these days!

    I really loved the cowl type scarf (there is probably a name for it, but I am a bit out of touch) was wondering if it was a pattern of yours, or you could indicate where I might find it.
    Thanks for much enjoyment & satisfaction from your blog,

    Very nice! I love the color against the winter background. That scarf is the perfect accessory!

    I’ve always had trouble getting patterns to fit properly…..
    I really like the pattern….but is it true to size?

    What is a digital pattern? I have been mostly quilting lately, and haven’t sewn any clothes for a long time. Do you print the pattern from your computer? Thanks.
