You see, the original pattern was for what appeared to be a tunic, so before I cut out my fabric, I shortened the pieces by 2 inches. In hindsight, this was a terrible idea, but alas, you live and learn. Well, in this case you sew and learn.
Pattern: Simplicity 7446
Size: Large 16-18 ( If I make this again I will fold at least 2 inches out of the center back before cutting it out)
Fabric: A cotton/poly blend shirting from fabric.com, which if I recall correctly, was $2 a yard
Notions: Zip, zilch, nada
Time: Way longer than it should have due to my icky cold
Make again? Probably not as a top, but I would consider lengthening it wear as a bathing suit cover up, if made in a super light fabric
|Obviously, I used the pattern on the right.|
So, there you have it, another finished object!
I have cut out a Vogue skirt to sew up next, but I am considering starting a McCall's dress instead. Stay tuned to see which I choose!
Also, over the weekend I hit up some estate sales and came home with about 80 patterns and 20 yards of fabric. About 90% of the patterns will be going up on Etsy in the next week or so. If you need petite patterns there will be quite a few so check out my Etsy shop!
