I realize is the second top in a month in blue, and i have a few fabrics also in blue just new in the stash, but I am really not blue…I just like this color apparently…:)
I`ve finished the top 118 from 10/2012. I`ve made 2 muslins, because i am between sizes and i was not sure what to trace .I`ve cut first a 36 and it was to tight , then made another one in 38. Much better, only then in my fashion fabric, wich is softer than the muslin fabric the gathering on the side is not as nice as i thought. I had to take a little in at the center back because it was something strange, like a bump or something :)..
I`ve done first the zipper with a normal zipper foot …not good , but then I remembered that i have a blind zipper foot from prym… very good ! :).
Sorry I don’t have a picture with the top in action but It is very nice to wear , pictures to follow.
Thank you for reading.
