I hope you are well!
I am back today to go over all the tops I made for my Spring Break Sewathon. After Spring break ended I headed back to work with most of them finished, except for a bit of hemming and putting in buttonholes. I got everything done this week, as well as worked on my Burda trousers--which are nearly done!!
Here are the final results of the four tops I made:
This is the Verna Top included in Simply Sewing magazine. You can find my review here. I love this top! The ties are beautiful, and I love the way they sway when you walk. On the back slit, I originally had a hook and eye, but was having trouble with it staying put. I got such great feedback from all of you. I tried out the different methods recommended to me, and in the end decided to create a fabric loop and sew on a matching button. It worked out so well! Now the top stays perfectly! Thank you all!
This top is Mccalls 8067. I cannot believe how this came out! I had high expectations, and I think they were met. Also, I really think the pockets on the bust was a good choice! My original plan was to leave them off, and I am glad I gave them a try. You can read my review here. I ended up finding some glittery pink buttons at Hobby Lobby to finish the top. I thought about doing neutral navy buttons, but threw caution to the wind and decided to make this top ALL FUN! I mean, that is why we sew right? Because we can do the spunky, funky, unique, over-the-top, or understated--whatever suits us!
Stay sew filled!
