I’d actually forgotten about this pattern. I’d cut out the skirt about 2 years ago, put it in a ziplock bag along with the pattern envelope, and forgot about it. While I look for tricot to line the skirt, I decided to make this cute top!
(Please excuse the off-centeredness. I’m still figuring out how to photograph myself with the self timer.)
The pattern I bought had sizes 12-20, and I’m a 10 on top. So what I did was use a wider seam allowance on the sides and center front. I used the standard 5/8″ SA in the back, but it droops at the back neckline so next time I’ll use a wider SA or just eliminate the seam altogether by placing it on the fold.
This is a great top for me. It’s interesting, cool for Florida summers, and seems flattering. What do you think; be honest! 🙂
