Description

Hello everybody,
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.

    Very nice! This top is on my list of future sewing projects, too! What kind of fabric did you use?

      Do sew it! It is a easy top with a nice effect. Sorry that I can say what is the fabric, but it has no stretch but the top is still comfortable to wear, but I must say that a fabric with a little more body, than what i have used , will give more nicer gather on the side.

    Wow – I love it! I’m wondering if this style will work on my middle-aged body?

      Thank you.I think this is something very flattering for anybody ( any body :) ). The gathers hide imperfections, the cowl is not to low, i find it a really nice model.
