Don’t get mad at me!

But I made another Burda Batwing top.  I promise this is my last one.  At least for a while.  I think I have them out of my system now.  I think.

I made it out of a really gorgeous knit that I believe I bought from Mood Fabrics in NYC in the last year.  It’s one of those knits that grows though.  It’s spongy, soft and cuddly.  But I think it’s a size bigger now that I’ve worn it all day.  I will have to serge the batwing portion of the top a little to tame it.  It’s soooo comfy to wear though.  Like pj’s.



One of the benefits of making a pattern multiple times, besides the obvious of increasing your wardrobe, is that your process is down to a science.  It’s wicked fast to make one of these tops.  The most difficult part is the neck binding and I had such an easy time with it last night.  I cut it out and essentially made the entire thing in about an hour and half.  This could become addictive.

OK, ok, I won’t make anymore.  This week.  I promise.  For at least 5 days.  There’s just something so seductive about a sure thing though.  Maybe I could whip another one up tomorrow.

Darn I might break that promise I made up there.

Happy sewing!

    It’s a great top and I understand why you keep making it again and again! Ahhhh the draw of the TNT pattern! *LOL* Now you know why I’m so enthralled with mine!

    Girl if you love it – you just love it! I ran Simplicity 2181 into the ground, and still might make it again. The bat wing top looks great on you!

    so pretty!!! I’d want to make multiples of this pattern too if I had it because it looks fabulous but sounds like it’s so comfy.

    I think it is a great shirt and I like seeing all of them you make.

    Make as many as you like! As long as you keep using different fabrics, non-seamsters will never notice–they will notice that each one is awesome but not that they are in any way the same. We will notice, of course, but we totally understand.

    Why not keep making them? They look great, must be comfortable, and fit your new West-coast lifestyle no doubt! This is my favourite version so far:-)

    Another great fabric for that pattern, you’ve got a good eye!

    LOL. I will not be betting any of my hard earned money on your ability to go cold turkey on this pattern any time soon! Why not work on some variations – a dress, a short sleeved version…

    Don’t you know…by making the same very cute and easy pattern in multiple fabrics…you’re being an inspiration? I love this one too!

    I don’t see a problem with another batwing top! Looks great and comfy, and you’ve perfected every aspect of it. I vote for another!
