Hello everyone! (revised post to include alteration instructions per request)
Sorry about the almost back to back posts on the same pattern. (I'll keep this post really short) I really liked this top so much, I wanted to make the alterations right away so it would be ready to go the next time I wanted to make it! (and I will be making it again but won't bore you with yet another post, LOL!)
I first made it here and there were a few things I personally didn't like...front neckline too low; extension in front much too long.
I used a Black Rayon Lycra knit from Joann Fabrics and below are the couple of changes I made:
I widened the front neckline by 1-1/2" on both right and left front
Shortened the front extension by half the size so it's not so long
Also made this one sleeveless
(per a request, I included photos of my alterations to the pattern pieces)
|Not photo'd...added 1-1/2" to back neckline as well!|
And here are the results...
I paired this top a white skirt I made from a Ponte Knit I purchased from Fabric Mart a while back. This is a simple pencil skirt with an elastic waist (so comfortable!). Love this outfit!
If you like this style of top, I highly recommend it with modifications.
Thanks again for stopping by!
