Ok so its not decorated to my tastes yet but it's up and running which is all that matters right now and here is my first make.
As you can see I inserted the elastic loosely; just enough to reduce the "fly away" look and create more of a blousen appearance without it being too fitted.
This is my first sewing project for May so it's not really been a sewing month for me at all. Yet I couldn't let a month go by without at least one make so this pattern was ideal for something quick and easy and with fabric I already had. It was a great top to make and I even did French seams throughout due to the sheer fabric which is a White Woven Slub Polycotton and available HERE from Minerva Crafts. It's perfect for this type of top but would look just a wonderful in a pretty patterned cotton.
My French seams!
I am loving everything about this top. I cant believe I never made it when I bought it. I have always been a fan of the off the shoulder look and these long frilly sleeves just make it so pretty. I am already seeing this in a pretty mini floral cotton.... :)
Thanks for stopping by and I'll try not to leave it so long next time!
Happy Sewing Everyone :)
