Woven and knit top

Burgundy woven front, jersey back top.

I was inspired by this style of top which has a woven front but a stretchy jersey back.
I used New Look 6420 as my starting point. I cut up a size and flared out the hem. In the end I kept the extra size in the sleeves, but removed most of the extra added in the body as it was very loose.
I would definitely sew this again, its a great way of using woven fabrics in a dressy t-shirt. And I know it will get a lot more wear in my lifestyle than a blouse, plus the comfort of the jersey back is wonderful.

Good idea, I have lots of remnants that could be used this way.

Very pretty top, well done! Your success encourages me to dig around in my stash for fabrics to use this way.

I really like the idea of using two different fabrics in the same top.

I have a few RTW tops like this and have always intended to sew something similar. This is a really cute top!!

Very neat idea! It worked out great for your two fabrics. Thanks for sharing the pattern that you used.
