Sorry about the poor quality pictures – very hard to take good ones of myself! I made this top following the pattern almost exactly (except at the collar part because I was impatient to finish!) I had cut the pieces out about 4 years ago (the last time I used a sewing machine!) and so, I was a little rusty and some parts are not well executed. The top is a little too big for me because I had made the same pattern before and found it too snug round the bust. So, four years ago when I cut out the pieces, I added to the dimensions. However, I’ve lost weight since then so it’s definitely too big!
Don’t know what type of fabric it is – I have so much to learn!
The man in the local sewing shop who persevered with me!
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
