I'm starting the New Year off with an old favorite - Jalie's Sweetheart Top, 2794. I've sewn this several times before, but this time I constructed it on the serger.
Myra was only somewhat cooperative with regard to modelling it for me...
Here it is, sans child. The fabric is a hot pink interlock from FFC. It is quite thick and cozy and very nice! I'm not altogether happy with the way the gathers and binding over the gathers ended up. I should have basted, as per the instructions, but I got a little stitch happy. The bindings ended up a little uneven. I just need some practice on the serger I think. That baby is fast!
It's a little big on Myra, particularly the neckline. I'll remember to raise it a bit the next time I make it for her. The only adjustment I made to this one was to lengthen the 3/4 sleeve to make it full length. She needs some long sleeved tops.
And this would be the reason I had such trouble getting pictures of Myra. Usually she loves the camera and is a total ham, but she loves her Baby Duncan even more!
