Why does it seem like whenever I have a clear concept in my head that seems easy to sew, it never turns out exactly the way I had envisioned? Case in point: this top. I won’t show you the sketch I had before I started, m’kay?
The main thought was: pleated top, cinched in at waist (something you could also do with an elastic casing or drawstring), with sort of a faux peplum at the bottom. Which now that I’m looking at in photos, needs to be a bit shorter. But OK, I will admit that I got the overall concept. I guess I think I was picturing it more flowy, less poofy. Maybe I’ll try this with the new AMH rayons when they ever come out. Yeah.
It needs a little work yet, but overall I like it. Next version is sure to have a Peter Pan collar. What do you think?
Besides the fact that I look dark and mysterious, thank you Michigan winter!!!
