Another one of the Blouse Back T but this time for me! If you remember the first one was for Meredith
This is a cute shirt but I love it on Meredith so much more than on me.
I used the same size as Meredith but probably should of made a FBA cheater and that would help the folds in the front.
I took more about an inch from the back of this top but it is still very long. One thing, I love this fabric on the back, it is from Girl Charlee Isn't it nice Junior participated in the back view?
Here you can see the proportion on the side view, blurry but you get the idea.
I did find the arms with the non stretch fabric turned out tighter than Meredith's version. If I make it again, I will add 1/2" to the arm band I think I will shorten the back a least 2" and not have such a high -low hem.
One other change is I made the neckline ribbing 2" wide instead of the Hot Patterns recommended width. I needed to shorten the length of the neckline, too. You can see my bra strap here and the neckline just didn't lay quite right.
Overall it is a nice top, the fabric from Girl Charlee is wonderful and that is a plus.
I am not sure how much I will wear this top, might just hand it onto Meredith if she wants it
I made this a couple of weeks ago and finally got around to blogging it. I did need some sort of winner in the sewing room. I have tossed a couple of dresses mid-way and a top that I totally cut the front and back wrong, nothing would match up. My sewing machine is in for repairs right now and I am using a borrowed one for now. At this point, with the new-to-me machine and my track record of late, I am going to work on a quilt that Erin wants for her bedroom. That might be the safest thing to do until I get my machine back.
Tomorrow I will have another okay garment to share. How has your sewing been going lately?
