Boy oh boy is life going by too fast or is it just me? It seems like I blink an eye and weeks have gone by! At least I’m being productive and getting some sewing in too!
I’ve completed my third entry to the #Make92018 challenge. It started with this image I saw in a magazine and has been residing on my inspiration board for sometime now...
I am so very happy I was able to finally make it come to life! Let’s start with the white top… I chose Vogue pattern 1440.
The fabric is a white cotton stretch twill (light weight) that I purchased at Joanne fabrics last year. The only change I made to the pattern was to add ties in the side seams. However, after completing the top, I realized it was a little to “A-line” and I should have altered that. That’s OK, it’ll do for this top because I so love the design of the back! Also, the collar and the collar stand both are a little too high (tall) and if I ever make this pattern again, I will shorten both. Overall, it worked out OK for this particular vision...
Together these pieces turned out exactly the way I wanted them and now I have a new casual outfit!
Faye of “Faye’s Sewing Adventure“ has a #2018TopsThatPop challenge and I plan on entering this top into that challenge!
Are you planning on joining Faye’s challenge? I hope so! She has a lot of inspiration for tops happening over on her blog!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
