Now back to the top...I got distracted for a minute there talking fabric, LOL! Looking through my stash for fabric to match this skirt, I found this Navy woven fabric (unidentified content) that was gifted to me a few years ago. It feels like shirting fabric, but I want to say it has a little Wool in the content. I'll have to wash a swatch to test before laundering this top because it really turned out nice and I don't want it to shrink!...
I made this top a size 12 (I wear a size 8-10 in RTW), who knows why the sizes are so off with patterns. The only alteration I made was on a hunch while cutting out the pattern...I decided to give "the girls" a little more room since this was a woven fabric. I extended the princess seam approximately 1/2" on both sides. Glad I did because it just fit me perfectly! Everything else remained as instructed by the pattern. I love the way they used purchased bias binding as facing to finish the armhole!
I have two more items completed that I'd like to share with you all very soon...I just have to get the reviews written up!
Thanks again for stopping by and sharing a little of your time with me, it's truly appreciated!
