It’s finally time to share the Delilah Top made by me & for me! I usually make for the kids or for the house, but today, I can share something I made for me.
The Delilah Top pattern is designed by Rachel at Golden Rippy – be sure to see all her patterns HERE. The pattern is good for beginners with knits because it is simple to assemble, as in no sleeves to set in! the sleeves are built in, and you get to choose short sleeves or half sleeves. And since both styles are so nice, I made one of each!
My short sleeve Delilah is in a thinner purple slub knit fabric. I made the size large so it would work with leggings & boots for the fall and with yoga pants & flip-flops anytime. I love the deep purple color, and I like it with a scarf when I need to fancy it up.
My half-sleeve Delilah is in an interlock knit in a bright teal blue fabric top stitched with a lime green thread (Go Seahawks!) and accented with the flowers on the shoulder made from the knit fabric. I made the size medium and it fits nicely. I like it with capris, denim skirt, and just simple jeans. I made the flowers with covered button centers, and used corsage pins so they can be removed for wash or for a less-fancy look.
The top is very comfortable, and both the slub fabric and the interlock fabric make a nice drape in the shirt.
Both tops were constructed on my sewing machine with the seams finished on my serger; however, the entire top could be finished solely on either machine. I might be ready to try the next one – and there will be a next one – only on my serger!
