ADELAIDE, THIS ONES FOR YOU...

... and anyone else who wants to know how this style top looks on someone other than a 21 year old.

The day after Memorial Day but I was still in the patriotic zone

Stiff hemline even after a good press due to textured knit fabric choice
I love with this pattern, so don't let my stiff hemline turn you off from the pattern style.  I'm looking forward making it again with another type of knit.   I should have used a  fabric with more drape, but there weren't many choices to pick from in solid colors.  Other than the stiff hemline - the fit is fine through the shoulders and bust area, and I like the way the sleeves fit too.  It's comfortable so I will make it again...

  1. Hi Faye, with such a lovely smile, I don't think anyone will look at the hemline. First run garments can be a bit like that - learning curves :)

  3. I think the top looks great! The fit is perfect and the wavy hem goes with the textured knit. It looks like a design element!

  12. It's flattering and just enough different to make it interesting. Have you considered unhemming and just leaving it with raw edges?

  18. Hi Faye... I'm back from an amazing holiday in Vietnam and couldn't wait to drop by to see what you've been up to and it looks like you've been busy sewing some great pants (love the black and the blue ones) and this top which I think looks great on you and looks perfect for a summer wardrobe addition :)

  19. I think the texture is great -- it gives the top great shape. I love your hair! I wish mine would curl like that.
