Back on Track #zara #sewingrota

So, after a wee detour we are back to Zara.
A pretty silky rayon currently available from Spotlight for around $17/m.
The same pattern I used to make Elsa's tops.
For a simple pj top it makes a lovely cami.
I swopped the ribbon straps out for self bias.
Worn here with City Gym shorts.
~Zara's Verdict~
This is my absolute favourite top in my whole entire cupboard. I love the fabric so so much and the pattern is one I have been looking for, for a while. Its absolutely divine. 

I am glad she is happy.

  1. This top excellent! I love it. How does it go getting on & off with a structured fabric? Or does the rayon have some stretch? It looks such a neat fit.

    1. Thank you Renae.
      The deep V at the front gives some bias ease so she can shimmy into it.

  4. Ah, I love it!! It's simple and chic, and will look really nice layered under sweaters or blazers as well as for lounging around. I don't blame her one bit for loving it! So pretty!

    1. Thank you Colette, it is a pretty print and such a nice drape. Spotters are really improving their apparel fabric range.

  6. Nicole,
    I love following you on your sewing adventures, I have been following since I discovered your blog sometime in 2011. You got me so inspired to have a go at sewing for my daughter and myself... Sadly I've never actually gotten time for my sewing projects. So I have some Lisette and Simplicity patterns I would love to gift to you, as I'm sure they will have more of a chance of being used.
