Cold Shoulder Top!!

Here is my completed top using Butterick 6425,

This is a nice pattern and now with all my fitting adjustments I am ready to make a couple more and a dress!

The fabric is from Fabric Mart.

I like how the top fits.  I made a forward shoulder adjustment, swayback and a FBA adding a dart. The dart is not noticeable due to the print design.  The other adjustment I made was to the sleeve. After I attached the sleeve to the bodice. I tried it on and had a very large droop with the top of the sleeve; I adjusted this by cutting out a wedge in the back and the front of the sleeve.

I wore to work earlier this week and took this pictures before work.  The top met the wearability test!

I have enough of this fabric to make a camisole or tank top.  

My next project is to make a pull over top from a pattern in my stash.  Hope to get it complete to enter into the Pattern Stash contest.  Not sure why I am doing this, as I will only have the on entry; I feel like I should complete this as I seem to always sign up for these things and then other things get in the way.  I did come in second though in a previous contest about a year ago.

More updates to follow.
