Undercover Disco Diva Top

So named by my daughter because I was sporting puffy hair, wearing platform sandals and near bell bottom jeans, lol. The Disco Diva’s were characters on an episode of That’s So Raven.

This top was DEAD simple AND responsible for making my machine go wacky. This rayon loves to get snatched into the machine. I finished it on the serger, left the hems unfinished and quite happily (and comfortably) wore it all day today. My family had a full day out and it was great! My shoes didn’t hurt, there were no mad dashes for a bathroom and it rained for about 3 minutes in total.

Anyway, about the shirt. It’s constructed very similarly to the SUPER Cowl, but it has shoulder seams. I love loose tops like this, but I usually wear them longer in length which can make me feel frumpy sometimes. This cropped length was awesome and it allowed me to get a long tank (with the stripes running vertically) cut from one yard.

But it will be some time before I can get to it, my machine was not ready on Friday….and may not be ready until the summer term has started. I am EXTREMELY pissed off, but I can do nothing but wait. So wait I shall. I’ll be back with more FO’s soon.

  1. Alas! Life can throw us some unpredictable doozies! Keep your head up! I am thinking that now you can spend some time on your other fave creativities!

  2. I sympathise, HATE it when my machine is out-of-action!! I go spare!
    On the bright side, you have an adorable little top to cheer you up… I just love it, and that the stripes are going horizontally looks fabulous!
    And thumbs up to that marvellous lip colour in the previous post!

  3. I love “Disco Diva Top”! My daughter and I used to watch that is so Raven all the time.

    I wonder if you could tell me how you cut the neckline. A local fabric shop showed me how to use their wonderful silks by folding in half lengthwise and cuting a neckline and then cutting the “t shape”. I have done it several times. I really like your neckline better than mine.
    I also have to tell you that you are such an inspiration to me. You must never sleep. With all you do for your family, your school and your amazing sewing! I wish you lived nextdoor. If you did I have an extra maching you could borrow until your is fixed.
    Keep up the great work, you are setting a great example for your children.
