Lacy top = instant gratification
For this super-quick project I turned back to Jalie 2805. Considering that I made it a few times already, this morning's project was all the quicker for not having to start by tracing a pattern. Since the rayon tees I'd made before seem to have grown over the few washes and wears, I took a 5/8" bite out of the SA while serging, and this improved the fit nicely, though it's still very loose in the waist. Just to be a little different, I shortened the sleeves to bracelet length and the hem by 2 cm.
The fabric's some sort of poly-lycra stretch "lace" with rayon embroidery, another freebie from Fabric Mart.
I intended this top as casual wear, but the pics suggest it has enough coverage to be suitable - with a jacket - for work wear.
