Welcome to my blog! I created ‘The Ravel Out’ to capture my makes while I unravel my sewing ideas, one stitch at a time.

Ravel (out)


  1. unravel; untangle.

  2. undo (twisted, knitted, or woven threads).

DIY: Off-The-Shoulder Top

Happy Friday! I'm currently obsessed with off-the-shoulder style for three reasons:

  1. It shows off my shoulders and gives a nice feminine look
  2. It's very easy to make
  3. It's way too hot right now to wear most things right now haha!


Once I made the first one, I couldn't stop and had to make a few more. I received a couple of orders even before I could put them on the rack at The Abbey which was great.


They are easy to dress up or down which is an added bonus. To change it up a little, I think i'll work on a few off-the-shoulder dresses. That would be even easier to throw on because you wouldn't have to think of what clothing item to pair it with.


It's obvious that these tops are easy to make considering I made two different tops for one blog post right? Haha! I think this is a great project for beginners and a great wardrobe builder as well.


Although I did not use the tutorial, Megan Nielsen's blog was my inspiration for making these tops. They are so perfect for this beautiful, warm weather!
