This top was sewn with the last version of the test pattern. The bodice is about an inch longer and the skirt on this one is about 5/8″ longer then the dress versions I shared yesterday. Again, I sewed up a size 4 with 5 length. It this one was bang on the money for A! I also pinched the neckline a little bit off center. It was totally unintentional, but turned out pretty neat so I rolled with it. I’m also thinking it would be a fun spot for a brooch or a little bow or something.
The fabric I used for this top is a cotton/spandex blend from King Textiles that I grabbed last summer. And apparently they still have some! So if you’re in the Toronto area, make sure to make a trip there, it’s super soft! And honestly really easy to work with.
I’m really happy with how this top has turned out! And so is A…which is a real bonus since again, we’ve stayed away from pink. I think this girl is finally letting go of her all pink wardrobe. Can’t wait to see what else I get to sew up for her now!
Have you grabbed your copy of the pattern yet? I’d love to see what you guys are making!
