Have you ever had this happen to you? You buy fabric for a pattern. Maybe you bought what the pattern envelope recommended and Used a Single Layer Layout. Maybe you bought a remnant of a fabulous fabric. Whatever the circumstances, you have a little under a yard, and you really, really want to use it. Well my friends, over the next week or so, I’ll show you some patterns that take that remnant out of your stash and into your wardrobe.
First up, StyleArc Ann Tee Top
Not named after me, though I do love it so. This was in the StyleArc rotation before I discovered StyleArc. The short sleeved version takes roughly ¾ of a yard for a size 10. This rayon jersey (sold out, sorry) from Gorgeous Fabrics is left over from another StyleArc that I made, the Jacinta Maxi Dress.
I have several pieces of knits that are left over from other projects, and I have a couple of other patterns that I love that are appropriate for leftovers. I’ll post those as I make them up. But in the meantime, here’s my advice for you when you have a remnant that is under a yard, but still useful. Pull out a tried and true sleeveless or short-sleeved pattern, and lay it out on your fabric and see if you can make yourself a top. If you use a single-layer layout, you can probably get yourself a top with minimal hassle.
