Sew Long Summer T-shirt edition


Musings of a Seamstress - Simplicity1062 hackHey Sewists!  I volunteered for double duty for the Sew Long Summer tour, so I am back with another new garment.  Today, I am sharing my pattern hack version of Simplicity 1062. This is my second version of this pattern hacked top I have made this year.  I posted about my previous version and the non-hacked version here.  I never did write my how to hack post though.  Maybe next month.

Back to this version now!  I made a few pattern tweaks from the last version and it made all the difference.  I love love love this top! The inspiration came from a top I purchased at Torrid a while back.  I has a woven front panel with a knit back  panel and neckline/armhole trim.  Not a typical combination, but it works for this top.  The front used .75 yards of Grayscale Tree Silhouettes Peach Skin Fabric from Girl Charlee purchased back in 2014 for $2.73.  The black is 1 yard of Ponte De Roma from Jo-Ann’s purchased in 2015 for $7.79 a yard. Total fabric cost: $10.52, which is less than half of what I paid for the inspiration piece.

I want to make one with a bright colored Ponte De Roma instead of the black.  I promise I will write a how to hack post at some point while making other versions.


I have really enjoyed participating in the Sew Long Summer Tour again this year.  Check out the other tour stops while you are at it.

  3. I love your top! That black and white fabric is very cool. I’ve also made a top with woven on the front and knit on the back.

    • Thanks! I have two tops now using this fabric. I instantly fell in love with it when I saw it on the Girl Charlee website.

  4. Awesome job – what a versatile piece. I love when I find something that is comfortable and looks good too!

  5. Great Top. The different fabrics on front and back works very well. The knit fabric on back will give just that ease that is necessary for a comfortable and good fitted top.
