Description

I sewed this top this weekend, I’m very happy with it!
I had never realized how beautiful this pattern is, maybe because the fabric they chose for the top A in the magazine has too many graphics that you can’t appreciate it better. It was until I saw the line drawing of the blouse, that I fell in love with it.
It is a very simple top with a front pleat, easy to sew, I only lengthen the zipper opening and sewed a vintage lace trim at the pleat edges to give it a retro look.
I had little troubles, first with the fitting, it was very wide for me, and then with the fabric, the edges were frayin, so I had to finished it very fast.
I used the wrong side of the charmeuse.

    I agree, a solid color is better for this. It’s beautiful.
