...kcwc day three
so i did a bit more sewing with an assistant. the top still isn't finished but i got the binding on and now just need to turn under the little shoulder inserts. and snip all those threads. of course elsa refuses to wear it for a photo :(
i could do with making another one of these tops straight away with the lessons i learned as i made it. that is the trouble when you don't quite have a plan...i am going to write my own little how to on the pattern i traced. like how i should have left a length of bias binding at the centre back so i could stitch it through to make a ribbon tie instead of having to add extra pieces. the top should have a button opening but a tie closure looks cute too. it would probably be better in a slightly stretchy fabric as a top for a toddler...they move so much!! i think it is going to look really sweet over a simple white turtle neck though. now what to bribe her with to model it for me?
