Well I have finished my first top of the mini wardrobe.
I like the pattern B5890 and I like this top.
I will make it again, but I think I chose the wrong fabric for the pattern, however I was stash busting for the mini wardrobe. It isnt crisp enough, but more importantly it just wants to waft about, not giving me that smooth clean line, I will constantly be adjusting it. .
A little different from the illustrations a) as previously mentioned the collar is now fixed and not white as it just wouldnt have worked, my fabric is alot darker than my illustration.
Its made of one of my least favourite fabrics (polyester) and its very floaty, I dont make floaty dresses or blouses. I love the pattern and the colours of the fabric and more than likely bought it because of that.
I had to make a slip to wear as my friend pointed out she could see absolutely everything underneath. "What Absolutely Everything!" Luckily I had enough of the material so I used that. I should have self lined it like the sleeves had been, but hadnt thought of that at the time. The sheerness didnt bother me while making it up, but maybe when out with joe public it could have proved embarrassing.
Okay, How you all produce these magnificent pictures with a self-timer is beyond me.
