V9771

This is my second top for the 2013 Top Sew Along, I still need to hem the bodice and tack down the back facing.  I made my first version in November 2012 with great success and this version fits as well as the first one.  I am letting this hang a little longer so if the bias wants to grow, it can before I do the final hemming.


I really like the drape at the neckline.  

This fabric is from Fabric Mart.

My next top is a peplum style top using this snake skin faux leather from Mood.  

I cut a small sample and wet it do see if it shrinks and how it holds up while it is wet and how it feels when it dries.  It did not shrink and felt basically the same before wetting it.  The backing on this one feels somewhat like a knit.  

I am in the process of preparing the pattern for pin fitting and probably consider making a test garment or muslin first before cutting into this fabric.

Tomorrow is back to work for me.  I thoroughly enjoyed my time off sewing and making more sewing plans.
