Whimsical Floral Top
with none other than........................Butterick 6425 (posted about here and here)
I am a pattern repeater and will make several versions of a garment. Honestly, I sew the way I shop, if I see a garment in the store and the style, fit and price is right... I want several of them. The same scenario plays out with shoes and handbags too.
Once I've sewn up a garment and the style, fit and construction yields what I envisioned, its like eating potato chips. I can't just have one.
This version was worked up in a floral knit from walmart and washed, dried and sew up nicely. Again sewed straight seams with maxi-lock stretch and finished seams with my serger. The neckline, armholes, sleeve hems & hemline were serged & flipped to inside and final stitched.
What I also like about this top is it will work perfectly as a tank top too, by omitting the sleeves... win win. I love a tank top under my suits. So there will definitely be more of these, as well as making a dress version.
I went dumpster diving in my fabric dungeon. I remember purchasing a yellow eyelet fabric with a scallop edge about a year or two ago, but to date haven't found it... uggh. However, I schlepped some other pieces from there and now need to make space in my sewing room for that.
My fabric dungeon is about to undergo a revamping and in shambles. With that, the fabric containers and other crafting paraphernalia are haphazardly stacked and totally a hot mess. I can totally envision that fabric for another cold shoulder top tho'.
Since, I am still exhausted from dumpster diving down there, I will work on something else in the meantime.
Have A Great Day !!
