Yey for left-over fabric. Had enough to make a Colette Patterns Sencha Top.
Whilst I love the styles offered, the fit of Colette Patterns is never good on me!
I needed to make about 3 or 4 muslins just to get the fit right. The fit was overly curvy at the hips and gaping everywhere.
I lowered the neckline because the original high neckline was very unflattering on me.
I lined the top rather than adding facings because, well to be honest neckline facings are evil/highly annoying and I try avoid them.
Date Completed: Earlier this year
Amount of times worn: 4…It’s casual but feminine, perhaps thats why I have worn it a fair bit.
Fitting notes: Was overly curvy at the hips/waist gaping at the back neckline etc. I lowered the neckline. I Also lengthened the tucks and lowered the hemline so the top was longer.
I have already made another version of this and instead of buttons at the back I added a zipper and now there is a whole lot more gaping to deal with. Will have to alter and re-fit the back. Annoying :(.
Fabric: About 1.50 cms of the floral voile.
Lining: This off-white polyester stuff.
Pattern: Colette Patterns Sencha Blouse
Notions: 5 white buttons
30 select jacket and coat patterns are now marked down to $3.99.
