ESSENTIAL TOPS SAL UPDATE
26 TOPS POSTED
7 DAYS TO GO
... I've finished my second top. Took me two days because I had to switch patterns. I started making a wearable muslin of New Look 6150. So glad I made a muslin, because as I thought, I did have a problem with View B gaping in the front. Modifications will need to be made when I try that pattern again. I switched to a pattern that I had made last summer - Simplicity 1916 View F. The top made from this pattern summer was a winner for me, so I decided to give it another try.
Even though I'd made the pattern successfully before, I still went to Pattern Review to see what others thought about it - and I'm glad that I did. I found the same top made by Aleah from No Time to Sew and loved the modifications she made to it. I followed her example because I didn't want this years version to look exactly like last years. The only thing different is I didn't have enough fabric to do the short sleeves - but that's ok, I still love it.
|You can't see the twist band on the front but it's there.|
I love jersey knit and choose this print mainly because of the medium blue color in the print. I have fabric to match for pants that I'll make later on. I might make this top again in a cotton knit and add the short sleeve next time.
Hope everyone had a Wonderful Easter, enjoying it with family, friends and a great Easter meal.
