The pattern is from Knipmode, februari 2010.
Here's the linedrawing:
The frontpiece (1) has a cut-on facing (1a). After closing the backseam of the neck (the small vertical seam between 1 and 1a) you fold in the facing and baste
it onto the seams of the frontpiece.
It's very easy and quick to make. Definitely a pattern I will use again.
There's a lot of draping at the neck so if you want to make this top, you should use a thin knit or else it will be quite bulky. This fabric draped just fine.
When I tried the top on during the sewingproces and the sleeves weren't yet in, I had a sudden vision of a warm summer, me going to the shop to buy some ice-cream, feeling hot and sweatty and enjoying/absorbing summer to its fullest.
Work in progressThat was when I decided this top could be made for summer too, without sleeves or just short ones. Oh...the possibilities of a pattern and the neverending ideas (i.e. dreams) of a sewist.
The sleeves on this top are 3/4 length.
I love this top very much. It has quite some cleavage which is fine if I stand up straight, but If I bend down....oh my.... So I guess I'll have to pair it with a cami.
What I like the most of this top is the print of the fabric. I wish I could find more of these fine-structured prints.
That's all for now. Talk to you again soon.
