Gosh time flies, I thought I had posted something earlier this week; obviously not. Even if I had I would not have been able to say that the Style Arc top was complete. I finished it up today and I am not overly excited about it. It's okay but nothing great. Photos to follow.
Likes: the fabric, the style (though may not be best style for me), easy to understand instructions
Dislikes: the size-runs large, dropped shoulders were too dropped for me and required two adjustments for proper fit; neckline very low and I raised it an inch and 1/2- still low; neckband to fiddly to work with and cut on straight of grain, does not work well that way. Decided to use bias binding, stitch and turn, then top stitch.
I will probably wear it around the house, perhaps not out in public as much as I thought. Will have to see.
Moving on to New Look 6150. This has been in my sewing line up for some time now. I have two knit fabrics from EOS that I am considering using to make this top. One has been in the stash for over 6 months and the other for about 3 months. From the reviews I read on Pattern Review, I think this will be a nice pattern to sew.
I also have several dress patterns I want to work on. I need some time off again just to sew!
