Red Christmas Top
Added Dec 27, 2008
For the upper part of the top I used this metallic sparkling yarns and half double crochet stitches for tighter work, so it did not require underlining.
The fabric is cut based on a Burda pattern from WOF 09/2007.
I ironed the pleats first using steam and water on the folds. Stitched the right side seam, inserted the zipper on the left, hemmed the lower and upper parts, and attached the cups (sewn by machine).
For the hem I used this tutorial from BurdaStyle: http://www.burdastyle.com/howtos/show/520
Yarn: Patons Brilliant: radiant red, almost 2 shins.
