This is another top I called ‘Hedwig’. The first picture shows the shirt on my dressform ( the torso is a bit corpulent, it is a size 44 ) I constructed the top using the vintage pattern pieces according to the model which is shown in the second picture. To be more precisly: I borrowed the origninal neckline piece and the sleeves part. The sleeves are o.k., I think, but the finished neckline looks not exactly like the original drawing. Next time when I sew another one which is similar to this, I will improve this.
Trying this 50th vintage-style I have always the problem with the waist finish. My personel waist is not a fifties. I am always asking myself how to solve this debacle. This time ‘Hedwig’ got an elastic in the lenght, so that I am able to shorten the top optionally.
