I think this fabric may be bad luck! This is the second (and last!) top I've made from it that I've been less than overjoyed with. I mean, it's not a complete wadder, but it ain't great, either.
line drawing shows an almost hourglass shape to the top.
Trinny and Susannah busty girls need lower necklines. I'm just sayin'.
The armhole is also quite low and wide. Bra is visible, which I why I am wearing a turtleneck underneath in the top shot.
I was hoping that this top would work out, as this was sort of a muslin for a lovely piece of knit from Gorgeous Fabrics that I really want to use. I only have a yard and the print has a big repeat, so I need a simple design. If you have already seen this post by Lisa about supporting Ann, you know why I'm chomping at the bit to use up my Gorgeous Fabrics. If not, surf over there.
A big thanks to all of you who shared your sewing nemesis both on the blog and Facebook. I'm feeling better about my sleeve. There is a very good chance I will conquer it today...
