There are so many things I don't need in my life--one is more patterns and the other is more fabric. But, since I am unwilling to give either up, I keep buying more! This c-c-cute little pattern is a fairly recent purchase and I have been waiting for the right fabric to make a cold-shoulder top.
This is a super simple pattern. There are only a few steps (less than 10 total) and you have a top!
I made view A with the shorter sleeves of D and B since I had limited yardage.
I made my usual swayback adjustment, FBA, and sloping shoulder adjustment. My fabric was super stretchy and I made a larger than normal swayback, but it wasn't quite enough and if I don't have this pulled down, I have some minor wrinkles. Win some, loose some, right? It still fits way better than anything RTW, and I really like it so I will wear it with pride!
My fabric is from a manufacturer called Stof. The content is 94% cotton and 6% Lycra. It is amazingly soft and the colors are very vibrant! The pattern is off-grain a bit which is a disappointment, but like I said earlier, win some, loose some!
I really do like this top. I have very few cold-shoulder tops so I am glad to add this to my closet.
I also added a neckband as I don't mind folding a 1/4" hems and stitching with a top stitch, but the neckband just bugs me. Your top will be lower than mine by about 1/2".
Thanks for reading!
