I have a much needed top to add to my wardrobe!
I originally planned to sew sleeves, but decided not. I also vetoed the scoop neck and went with the V-cut neckline! I cut about 1/2″ off the length, ’cause I have a short torso. And, added hem lace for finishing.
I love the fit! I plan to make another in white silk! Until then…HAPPY SEWING!
P.S. My children go back to school in 2 weeks – YIKES!!!
I need more tops in my life and I’ve been wanting to sew up this pattern for Y-E-A-R-S!
So, I have leftover white silk from another project; just enough for View D (sleeveless and V-cut neckline). I also have a light blue stretch cotton from my stash, for which I will sew View B (short-sleeved and scoop neck). I’ve picked pretty vintage buttons for both tops!
I ALWAYS have to do a FBA, and so I made a muslin. After the first fitting, I extended the length 2″ on the back piece; pinned out excess on front and side front pieces; and, extended 1″ on front facing.
After fitting alterations made – the second muslin fitting…
I transferred all of my alterations onto pattern pieces. Am now cutting out the pattern with my fabric! Will keep y’all updated!
Until next time, HAPPY SEWING!
The skirt was seven pieces and I constructed with french seams. The mother-of-the-bride (my friend), cut out lace details and hand appliqued randomly throughout the skirt!
Can you see it? It is beautiful! And, as you can also see, I added a tulle overlay.
I made an underskirt of silk charmeuse for the lining and outerskirt and gathered tulle layers for poofiness!
Here is the dress in motion!
She loved her dress…and, I was happy to be a part of her “Happy Day”!
I originally had this fabric slated for a dress. Not sure the type of fabric – it’s like satin; the wrong side is shiny and right side is matte. But, when I saw these pants on Burdastyle, I knew this was the pattern to sew with this fabric! But, I used New Look 6764, View A (no tie, just an elastic waist).
I planned on adding a cotton lining, but decided against it. This fabric could hold its own – a nice quality fabric! I used french seams – this fab ravels a lot. All-in-all, I’m pleased!
