|Lights!!! Camera!! ACTION!!!|
I was taking time to clear my photo files, trying to clean my computer, when I came across this picture....What is this? my question to myself. Where did I hide it? Who was it intended for? Shoot!! I didn't even remember I had been working on something so pretty. I checked the date on the picture...JUNE! you say. What? Now, I remember!
Side seams undone, bust darts badly located. A UFO!! Why did I not finish this? The video will explain it all. I hope you enjoy the lessons therein.
StyleArc Amber Woven Top has decorative overlay on neckline and down center front with optional piping color block.
Fabric: Polyester for the body, ponte knit covered with plastic squares that look like sequins from afar.
I cut a size 14, but it was way too big in the waist, so I needed some sort of dart shaping to make it not look so boxy. After finishing the top, I had to go back and insert a zipper and several darts to get it to fit nicely.
I really don't have a clue what style or body this top would look good on the way it is cut, without using a knit. I just does not do the body any justice.
After an exposed zipper and some darts...this is one my most beautiful holiday tops. Well, actually, my only holiday top. So you may see this one more than once before the end of the year.
