Fabric for Pirates :: April 2021 Reveal

Apr 15, 2021

Woohoo!  I think for the first time ever, I’m excited about April 15th showing up — because this time it means I get to share the April Fabric for Pirates subscription!

This month’s fabric is a super soft, purple-goodness of a “Yummy” 4×2 Ribbed Knit (GSM: 180.00 Content: 87% POLYESTER 13% SPANDEX) I luuuurve Yummy Rib so much right now — I’ve got a bunch of it in solids just begging to be turned into something and I’ve made a few tops for Bennett, Louis and I with it before.  It’s a huge hit in our household.

Of course I’m in extra love with this month’s fabric because of the ditzy floral / purple combination.  Purple is the best, isn’t it?  And also….LOOK HOW CUTE IT IS!!!  So perfect for spring/summer, right?  I made mine into a Twist Back Top from P4P…which is the first time I’ve sewn this pattern since release.  For shame, too!!  I forgot how fun it is to nail that twist and make something with a little party in the back going on.  Here’s a bunch of pictures of my butt to show you how fun the top is. HA!

As soon as I pulled this top off of the machine, I slid it on and then demanded that Bennett tell me my back was looking stronger.  I’ve been doing a lifting program for the last four weeks, three times a week, and I really needed him to lie to me and give me this reassurance that I was making progress.  I didn’t feel like he fully committed to his “of course you’re looking stronger” but I’m just going to take what I can get right now.  Forced compliments or not.

The Twist Back Top literally does what it says.  It twists in the back.  It features a dolman style sleeve, which has a long sleeved option — but I opted for the short sleeved length this time, thinking I’d be wearing it a lot in the next couple of seasons.  It’s a looser fitting silhouette, and the back itself is pretty open.  I like to toss on a cami underneath for a little extra coverage in the bottom-back…and also to make sure my bra doesn’t peek out above the twist.  I have a tanktop version that I made during testing that gets worn A TON by me with leggings for working out, so it’s super nice to have a version that I can wear in a more casual manner now.

It’s love from me, what do you think??
