Quilted Knit Top with Yoke.

When you are planning on making a post mainly with photos it would really be an advantage if the photos were good, right!! Well, not today - sorry!!!

This top has put me through 3 photo shoots and I made one mistake after another BUT I learned some things along the way! Unfortunately for you I will only show that in my next post, ha.
So today you are getting some overexposed crap and I'm sorry about that but I just couldn't handle a 4th photo shoot.
Oh, and thank you Celina for helping me avoid utter disaster and doing your editing magic.


The worst part is that I looooove this top and I have been looking forward to show it to you. So here it is folks!!


It is actually made with the same self-drafted pattern that I used for THIS post. But with short sleeve of course.


What a difference this fabric makes compared to the green think and drapey fabric I made the other top from.

Both these lovely fabrics are from Miss Matatabi on Etsy.
The navy quilted knit is so cool and suitable for so many projects - it is both soft and sturdy at the same time.
I wasn't able to find the amazing floral cotton fabric again in her web shop - I think I bought it on sale so it might be gone - but it has texture a bit like gauze but thicker. I love it so SO much. And I can reveal that it is playing a big role in my next post - uhh, teaser!


Cotton shirt from H&M and slim utility pants from J.Crew.


Here is one of the few photos from one of the earlier photos shoots that was not blurred (it took some time to figure out how to handle focus AND taking photos with a remote with my new lens, ha) BUT with this shot I realized that ironing my shirt would be a good idea. Siiiiigh!

Thank you for your patience!

  1. I don't think the photos are that bad and the top is awesome, so in the end that is what counts! And really, no need to mention me in this post. Now you are making me want to go to Miss Matabi's shop and sew for myself. You have great powers I tell you.

  2. Looove this top lots lots. And I'm going to nag (in a good way) you to death until you release a pattern for it. And those fabrics are amazing! Super curious to see the next post. And don't worry about the photos, you're doing a great job improving your skills! <3

  3. Those photos aren't that bad! I am a chronic overexposer, so I'm good with it, ha! And oh god...I've done 1 (successful) photoshoot on my own...with the tripod...it's rough. LOVE that sweater, and really want some quilted fabric, pronto! Gorgeous, Mie!

  5. I love it! I love that you made the yoke in a floral print. (Sucker for floral prints here, remember? ha!) Can't wait to see what's coming next!!
    I really must get myself some quilted knit. I am in love with everything I see made with a quilted knit... :)

  8. What a gorgeous top! Love the fabrics combo. I seriously have no idea how people take photos of themselves successfully! I use a very cool device to take my pics - my husband! If I don't like the photos I can blame him ;)

  9. Oh, I love how the top came out, Mie. That quilted knit looks amazing and I love it paired with the floral fabric. I can't tell you how many bad photo shoots I've had but it's got to be in the hundreds. I think these came out fine and think about how much you've learned for next time.

  10. I think the photos are lovely. I still can't seem to nail focus with my tripod. At least not of myself. I tried when pregnant and it was a total bust. Great top and you look adorable!

    1. Well, thank you! I actually ended up using my dress form to focus on and then swapping it out for me....it was a bit tedious but it worked :-)
