Ten Pin Tuck Top

Added Nov 29, 2008

by bola

Leeds, United Ki...






I made this top to go along with the bohoho skirt. I had ideas about making a top with pin tucks to see what effect the lines would produce. The sadie pattern was the basis for the bodice which gave it a really nice shape, overall I’m really like the result and I think I may try a similar top with pockets and/or a dress…

    This is very cute. The pintucks transform an otherwise plain and normal top into something wonderful and unique. I am so inspired to do something with pintucks.

    What an eye-catching garment! Your pintucks look so much nicer than darts on jersey fabric. You have done a fine job. I hope to see more of your needlework. Cordially, Nehmah

    I like your creations. You´re very creative! Thanks for your comment on my site. I´m still to busy. I wish I had time to sew. But I love to see the creations of you and some other menbers. And I don´t give up hope…perhaps soon I´ll find a few hours for sewing.

    I love the pin tucks. Will have to try this. Did you lengthen the top at all or leave as it was?
