NSFW (Not Safe For Work) Top – George+Ginger

I’m pretty sure that it’s common knowledge that Kristi from G+G is super creative and innovative, but did you also know that she has a great sense of humor and loves April Fool’s day?

We all need a little laugh these days, don’t we? The NSFW (Not Safe For Work) Top pattern is here to deliver just that.

The pattern itself is absolutely family friendly btw, no worries there 😉

The NSFW part is in the Instructions. 😀
It’s the FUNNIEST thing! Some foul language that, I believe, most of us can relate to when sewing a project.

My first time reading it I was laughing so hard that my husband and kids came in to see what was going on. LOL

***PLEASE READ:  This pattern was released on April Fools Day as a Not-Safe-For-Work fun pattern that includes explicit language.  However, there is a censored version of the instructions included.***

The NSFW pattern is a super cute tube top with multiple options and perfect for the warmer weather. It’s also perfect for a instant gratification project, it’s so fast to sew!

You can choose from Crop or Full Length and create an array of tops by using different options:

  • full length can be hemmed or banded;
  • crop length can be banded, have a ruffle or a skirt;
  • basic straps with or without ruffles;
  • tie straps.

The one thing I feel is important to mention on this pattern is that even though it’s a tube top, it’s not exactly tube shaped. It has a curve to account for the bust that makes it super comfortable to wear. Nothing gets squished! I really appreciate that.

I made 3 and they all have different vibes. I love when a pattern allows so much variantion!

1 – FULL LENGTH, BANDED, BASIC STRAP WITH RUFFLE

I absolutely love this one!
This is the one that immediately came to my mind when I saw the line drawings. I really like that it’s a longer top so I can tuck it in and have it stay put when moving around.

The fabric is By Lisan CL from Driessen Stoffen. I love the art deco look of it!
CL works great with this pattern, I especially like how it makes the ruffles hold their shape.

I mentioned this is a very fast sew. Do keep in mind though, if you choose to make the ruffled straps and/or add one of the skirt options it will make the process a tad longer due to the gathering.

I paired this one with some Zappa Pants I’ve made a while ago and I think it’s the perfect combo. Tube tops and bell bottoms belong together, don’t they?

2 – CROP LENGTH, CROP RUFFLE AND TIE STRAPS

I blogged about having a fabric mishap when making a workout set (see post HERE). Those patterns didn’t work because the fabric was a 2way stretch. Well, it did work with the NFSW! Woot!

This pattern is such a great stash buster. I manage to use the left overs from that other project to make myself a cute top.

I love that the hem ruffle brings it down to a length that I can easily wear with high waisted bottoms without showing skin if I don’t want to.

The tie straps are so cute! It makes me think of those adorable little girls summer dresses.

Gathering is hands down my least favorite thing to do when sewing. To be honest, I hate it with a passion. In fact, the NFSW instructions reflect my feelings about it to a T! lol

It is a necessary evil though… it looks so d*mn cute when it’s done!

Here I paired with a store bought pair o leggings. But can you imagine how cute this will be with a pair of denim shorts during summer?
Keeping fingers crossed that by summer we’ll be able to enjoy trips to the lake and I’ll be able wear it then. <3

3 – FULL LENGTH, HEMMED, STRAPLESS

This is my year-round version of the NFSW. A basic, strapless tube top in a leather-look ponte.

It can be paired with pretty much anything! Wear as-is during warmer weather or under a blazer, jacket or cardi when it gets a bit cooler. I think this one will be worn a lot more than the other two just for the fact of it being so versatile.

This one really was lightning fast to make, like 20 minutes from cutting the fabric and having it done.

Here it’s paired with my knit Everlong. I blogged about this one a while ago, you can read about it HERE.

It also looks really cute with my scuba Seether skirt.

Which look do you prefer? Over the skirt as above, or with the NSFW tucked in?

I just realized something… Not only are all the patterns on this post from George+Ginger, but all the fabrics are also from the same source, Driessen Stoffen. With the exception of that store-bought leggings. 😉

Before I stop babbling, a little reminder:

The NFSW pattern comes with 2 sets of instrucions:

  • CENSORED – the regular instructions that you’re used to.
  • NOT SAFE FOR WORK instructions – this one has EXPLICIT LANGUAGE! It’s funny af, but don’t open it if you feel it might offend you. 😉
