Gorgeous. Just gorgeous. And very flattering on you too. I need to make this one up myself. What tweaks would you do next time? It seems as though all I do is make alterations to patterns these days.
I needed to make a forward shoulder adjustment. The bust was a little snug so I took a 3/8 seam instead of 5/8. So I think I will add a little just at the bust line.
Well, I like the neckline, too!
I like the neckline and the fabric! I looked at that fabric and thought that you would end up with bullseyes, it's nice to see that you don't. The print works so well in this piece. Great job!
I think the dots are so uniform that you would not end up with bullseyes! I wish I had more of this fabric, it sewed well.
Nothing like the perfect neckline! Super little top.
No wonder you are in love with the neckline ... It's beautiful!
I love that pattern, and I love cowl necklines. Yours looks great!
Thank you! I am liking this pattern so much that I have another one in the works.
Cute top! What a unique fabric and colors. This is a cute one!!!
Looks fantastic! I love seeing this fabric transformed since I have been contemplating what to do with mine. Thanks for the inspiration.
Thank you! I think there are two other bloggers with this fabric! It is nice to see how others make something using the same fabric.
Cute top. It's a great neckline.
I just found your blog! I have this pattern and that same fabric. I bought the fabric to make this pattern. How lovely it turned out for you. Can't wait now to do mine. I have made the pattern once already in silk charmeuse. I did a 5/8" FBA and rotated the dart to the neckline. I like it but I think I like your neckline better.
Thank you for your comment. I really do like this pattern and have plans to make a long sleeve version. I will be following your blog and hope to see your version of this.
I am adding comment moderation as I found recently some comments that really have nothing to do with the post at hand. I may decide to change this in the future. Sorry a few bad apples ruin something for many!
