Yey for left-over fabric. Had enough to make a Colette Patterns Sencha Top.

Whilst I love the styles offered, the fit of Colette Patterns is never good on me!

I needed to make about 3 or 4 muslins just to get the fit right. The fit was overly curvy at the hips and gaping everywhere.

I lowered the neckline because the original high neckline was very unflattering on me.

I lined the top rather than adding facings because, well to be honest neckline facings are evil/highly annoying and I try avoid them.

Date Completed: Earlier this year

Amount of times worn: 4…It’s casual but feminine, perhaps thats why I have worn it a fair bit.

Fitting notes: Was overly curvy at the hips/waist gaping at the back neckline etc. I lowered the neckline. I Also lengthened the tucks and lowered the hemline so the top was longer.

I have already made another version of this and instead of buttons at the back I added a zipper and now there is a whole lot more gaping to deal with. Will have to alter and re-fit the back. Annoying :(.
