Description

I used viscose stretch jersey in royal blue for this project. It drapes beautifully and is very soft. And it’s wee bit more wallet friendly than silk jersey.

Putting the top together was fairly easy. I did run into some trouble with armhole hemming tapes. They turned out a bit too narrow in my opinion, making top stitching them a real pain in the ass. I will most definitely add another centimeter in with for them next time. I added an centimeter to the bottom hem when I cut the top out. In my opinion 1,5cm hemming allowance is somewhat small and it will end up rolling up.
