...The Over The Top Challenge has created inspiration for a much sewing frenzy. Seems I always need new tops, and they are usually the quickest way that I know of sprucing up my wardrobe at the change of seasons.
Although I've been a little sick with this sinusitis and an ear infection to boot, I was still motivated to get some sewing done. I finished this faux wrap New Look 6901 today. I made it first last year, really liked the fit so I gave it another go for this challenge. This time I did change the pattern just a little by increasing the neckline height and decreasing the size of the band that finishes the neckline. The pattern's band was much too wide for me - so I changed it up just a bit. I also invisibly stitched down the wrap because no matter what, I always get a little gaping in the chest area - with this the problem is solved. Though there are many faux wrap top patterns available, this one, with just a tiny bit of rushing at the left side seems to fit me best. I guess this will be my "go to" TNT faux wrap top - no need in reinventing the wheel.
here it helps me out a lot.
I have two more tops in the "bull pen" that I'd like to completed by Friday (April 15 end of the challenge"). I actually need many more than that but feel it's high time to move on to other things. Although I've been reading along, I haven't even started my jacket for the RTW Challenge that I joined. I do still have plans for that challenge; however, this one took precedent.
I do hope that everyone had a nice, restful and productive weekend...............
