THE STRIPPED TOP



Thank you all for looking in and commenting on my new stripped top. I can't tell you how much your comments and compliments mean! I had several comments about the way the strip lines up around the neckline and the front of the top. I actually did not plan it that way, it just sort of happened when I laid the pattern piece for the band lengthwise to cut it straight of the gain of the fabric. I hadn't even noticed it until you mentioned it (tee hee). Sometimes things just turn out right or should I say interesting.

  2. I have that pattern but haven't tried that version because I was afraid it would be too low cut. But your's looks really good and not too low so maybe I'll give it a try now!
