Talia Twist Top by Rebecca Page is a great addition to any closet. This is one of the newer patterns from Rebecca Page. It is a very good play off those dresses that keep popping up in my newsfeed from Zulily and other fast fashion sites. The reason this is better…You custom fit your body. Nothing makes me feel better than great fitting clothing! As a bonus, no one will be wearing the exact same item as you! You pick the prints, colors, and options!!
This was a super easy sew and not at all a fabric hog. I created my top with just over a yard of fabric. The front bodice is a double layer to enclose the seams. I used the 5x pattern and did a full bust adjustment. The FBA directions were a FREE download from the website and are easy to follow and give great results. I added 2 inches to my bust and actually wish I would have added just a bit of length as well. When I raise my arms, my top tends to drift upwards just a little. This also may be because I used French Terry instead of a more stretchy knit like Double Brushed Poly. I think I will try this top in a less stable knit before adding length. Another thing I love about this top, all of the seams are enclosed. I feel like that is something Rebecca Page is very mindful of. Neat finishes are always a bonus and the more I sew her patterns, the more I appreciate them!
Speaking of French Terry, I picked this one up from Stitchin’ Pretties! When I ordered it, I thought I would be making a pair of shorts, but this is where I ended up and I am not at all mad about it. I love that French Terry is a little bit muted or softer in its tones. I am usually all bright and bold colors, but sometimes, I just want to be calm. French Terry is calm. This is more of a dark charcoal gray then a black because of the way French terry looks. The name of this FT is Delilah. Here is the link. I love the great selection at Stitchin’ Pretties, but especially love their lightning fast shipping! Today actually marks the one-year anniversary of SP so join the Facebook group to follow all of the fun!
The Talia comes with a partner pattern. That means you can bundle it with a dress or tank as the bottom layer. This dress was drafted to be a perfect complement to the twist top. It features two length options and thin straps that can be made easily with Fold Over Elastic. It would also make the perfect night dress or tunic to layer when the weather is cold. I love when I can use a pattern a little different than its actual purpose because it allows more bang for my buck!
The Talia Twist Top Options include three sleeve lengths – short, three-quarter, and long

Talia Tunic and Dress Options include – Tunic and Dress Lengths
I am wearing a tank top I already had on hand.
