First time making spaghetti straps, first time making adjustable straps at that, first time adding buttons, first experience with princess seams, bias tape, and first time drafting a pattern from an existing piece of clothing (a top I got from Plato’s Closet last summer that I loooooove. I also used the contour bust pattern, which was easy to work with, but a little large for me, so I have to take in the sides of the bust a little yet, but I’m so excited about the way it turned out I wanted to post it right away…here it is! My first post on burdastyle :)
