The top is almost complete

  • Side seams sewn-yes
  • back opening area stitched-yes
  • neckline complete-no
I have decided to use fold over elastic that is a bronze/gold color identical to the color on the lace knit.  I debated over this for sometime now. I decided that the gold trim at neckline works with gold   in the scallop edge of the top and sleeves.  Reading the tutorial on I am hoping that this will attach as easily as it looks on the site.  I have to do this tonight and then sew hook and eye.

Friday will be hectic running around with last minute things to do before leaving on Saturday.  I did find me two pairs of white pants-one a stretch denim and one a cotton- to wear with this top.  Photos to follow when complete.



  1. Gasp, this is my first time at your blog ... you have SO much going on! I've sewn forever but am just learning about blogging. You have a really impressive site.

    I didn't know about "Sew much talent" I think I might join.

  2. Glad you stopped by Andrea. I am constantly amazed at the number of bloggers that I keep finding that love to sew. It is very inspiring to us sewist.
