I purchased this for the neckline on the top and dress. Can you blame me? It's so cute!
My fabric is a gorgeous Stof knit I purchased in Baton Rouge, Louisiana while visiting DD1 and granddaughter 1. Yes, I was also visiting the Son-in-law and need to mention him as he is a great guy.
You can see the subtle stripe in the knit. Gray and yellow. Love these colors together!
I made my usual alterations for a swayback adjustment and FBA. I really didn't think I'd need the sloping shoulder adjustment and I was right, I didn't make it this time.
This top is super easy to sew. Had I had enough fabric, this would have been a dress. The back of the pattern envelope tells you that 1 5/8 yard will get you a dress. I had almost that much and there was no way it would work. I would have a bit more fabric on hand that what the pattern calls for.
Isn't that neckline just cute? It is also modest and work appropriate. Bonus--no bra strap showing!
I love how this fits and looks with my simple gray pants I also made. I see more makes using this pattern!
Some of you have asked with stitch I use on my hems and here it is! Number 19 or a honeycomb stitch. It looks just like my coverstitch only doesn't misbehave. I prefer this method over a coverstitch machine any day of the week.
Thanks for reading!
