Make a Luxurious Layered Top

Article Image

Sumptuous tweeds and bouclés are difficult to resist. If you don’t feel like venturing into constructing a classic jacket-either tailored or quilted-try making a quick-to-sew pullover top that’s lined with silk. Think of it as a dressy T-shirt or sweatshirt, and pair it with velvet or faux-leather trousers or jeans, or toss it on over a body-skimming knit dress. The fabric will be the star of the outfit, and you’ll be comfortable and chic.

Check out this related Insider video “How to Line a Top to the Edge.”

    I am disappointed that Threads blog posts "insider" articles that cannot be accessed by everyone - such as the How to Line a Top to the Edge posting. (I thought that I could access them because I have a subscription, but I cannot).

    Editors, I would like to suggest that Threads consider ending the "insider" two-tier system. As a subscriber to the magazine, I find it annoying and non-subscribers are probably turned-off by it. Thank you.

    You have come up with interesting topic

    I totally agree with Jen_NYC about getting rid of the two tier system. I have subscribed to the magazine for years, and find it annoying, and frankly insulting, that I can't access the insider articles. If all I can access are reruns of the magazine articles, why should I subscribe to you newsletter at all? Editors, please reconsider.

    I totall agree with Jen_NYC -I've been a subsriber for more years that I care to count, and I am NOT going to subscribe AGAIN for a different information channel. I am disappointed and annoyed. And considering cancelling my print subscription. Cooks Illustrated did the same thing and I cancelled that after being a subscriber for xx years also! Very annoying.

    I totally agree with Jen. I recently re-subscribed with the added notion that I would be able to access the insider videos. Why subscribe to the magazine when many of the best articles get presented on the free part sooner or later?

    Over the years I have been frustrated that I cannot see the insider videos; why should I even open up an email from Threads if I will just be disappointed?

    Absolutely agree, it's absurd and it's a struggle every time. I subscribe to the magazine AND have an on-line log in as well, yet it takes multiple log ins to ever see any of the articles. Getting to be not worth the frustration and effort.

    The Insider: What I find most frustrating is having to sign in several times as the first time doesn't always work. Also some of the articles are available in Threads magazine which I do subscribe to.
