I just finished testing the 24/7-top that has been released by Ellie & Mac this week.
It is just such an easy sew that I finished 3!
I combined woven and knits, three different ways.
The first one I made, I used a woven fabric (cotton) from Poppy (https://www.destoffenstraat.com/triangle-licht-blauw-b-inspired-by-poppy), light-blue with triangles as main fabric, and added some stretch lace from Driessen (https://www.driessenstoffen.nl/shop/2-euro-per-meter/bedrukte-stof/kant-stretch-19/).
My second one, I went for all knits. Cotton jersey flowers for main (bought it at megastoffen.nl, but it is no longer available) , and some more stretch lace.
And my third version is made out of cotton jersey monastera’s (https://www.stoffenfeest.nl/shop/monstera-black-digital-jersey-tim-swafing/) (some left-over fabric from my test for the ‘True Beauty Dress’ by Ellie&Mac) and this time I used a dotted woven (https://www.dekkersstoffen.nl/stoffen-aanbod/stof-met-stippen/cotton-black-small.html) as a finish.
I must say the one completely in knits is the most comfortable to wear, and the one with the monastera-leaves is my absolute favourite one. The one with the triangles is definitely wearable as well, but is a little more light
This top isn’t meant to be tight fitting, if you like it a little tighter, you can best use one size smaller and all knits!

5 gedachten over “24/7”
ze zijn supermooi en staan je prachtig. vooral het groene met de blaadjes vind ik zo mooi.
Dank je! Is ook mijn favoriet!
I love your second one! And an interesting idea to mix the knits and wovens together!
