Megan Nielsen Banksia

I made Megan Nielsen's Banksia top out of black slub jersey from April Johnston's collection that I got in the red tag section at Jo-Ann Fabrics.

I love this top and I can't wait to make more versions! It was very simple to sew.  I will make it longer next time, though.

Total Cost: $4

  • Fabric: $4
  • Elastic: stash (my mom's stash - it looks like it's from 1950)

My brother decided to jump in on this photo shoot.

I used Megan Nielson's tutorial on how to make a jersey Banksia and her tutorial on how to lengthen the sleeves.  I used 1/2" elastic around the cuffs. Both of her tutorials were super helpful and she's such a sweetheart.
