Art Gallery Fabrics One Hour Top

I’m so excited about this post!! When Art Gallery Fabrics asked if I wanted to be part of their 30 days of sewing with AGF, I instantly said yes.  I knew right away what I wanted to make. A Fancy Tiger Craft one hour top! I always need more tops.


I really love this pattern, because not only is it free, but it’s so easy to whip up. I began browsing through the AGF fabrics. They have so many interesting fabric patterns, I wanted all of them! Finally I chose one from their Anna Elise collection called Tribal Sturdy Print Aura.


My eyes were drawn to the fun colors, which are perfect for fall. This top took a lot of taping and cutting (it’s a pdf) but it requires minimal sewing, and since the fabric is so smooth and easy to work with, this top is so easy to whip up! I swear, AGFs’ fabric feels like angels made it. It feels wonderful against my skin.


I made this top in an XS, but I had to make some adjustments to the sleeve length, since it was a little bit off. It still feels a little big, but it’s perfect for wearing with leggings. My mom wants to steal this shirt from me…so maybe I’ll have to make her one! Hmm, I see another top in the future. But as I told her, “You’re paying for the fabric.”


My sewing room was a bit messy when I made this. Okay, a lot messy. Construction of this pattern is pretty basic, the instructions are pretty clear, but since it’s my first time making a pdf pattern, I stumbled a little bit. I think I should have made this pattern using cardstock instead of printer paper, but it’s too late now.


The style of this top is pretty large and boxy, which I’m not sure I like, since my figure is drowning in fabric and I feel like the top is always slipping off my shoulders. But I do like that it’s pretty long, almost like a tunic. It’s perfect for wearing with leggings.


We went to the town park to take pictures. My mom took about 50, and I loved all of them and had a hard time choosing which ones to put in the post!


All in all, I really love this top. It was so easy to sew, the fabric is beautiful, and the top goes great with all my clothes.


And now is where I say goodbye. Have a great week!

Now I just need to find the time to make them. Actually, I really like that top, so I might have to download that and make that first. Great job, Abs!
