2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

June 26, 2016

EYELET IS FULL OF HOLES (cont.)....

...when I posted my proposed eyelet top project on FaceBook,  my cosmetology teacher muse/friend commented, "Size 8 please no color preference".   After completing my top, posted yesterday, I still have so much of the fabric left I thought I'd grant her request.  Notice she mentioned "Size 8" which is much smaller than me or my dressform - Ms. Faye, so her top looks a bit squeezed on in my pictures. 



8128 caught my attention right off the bat when Simplicity's summer pattern's were first released.  Although simple, I love the retro, boxy, swing, cropped design.  I love retro, and I think my friend loves retro even more than me.  I hope it fits and that she likes it.  I'll try to get it in the mail to hear early this week.   On this top I used the shell fabric for the neck facings and did not interface.  For the armhole facing I actually used the fabric selvelge in the same manner that you would normally use bias tape as facing.  Other than being tight on this dressform, I think the top turned out fine.  

Now I need to make this pattern up for myself, in another fabric choice of course.  Eyelet is still full of holes...
