My latest sewing adventure was to make myself a top with a bow. I attempted to make this top following a vintage pattern but failed miserably. Instead I based it very very loosely on the Burdastyle Lydia top which has become my sloper/bodice pattern. I added darts, changed the neckline, flared the sleeves, added plackets as well as the bow before sewing on some buttons and voila!
