Fabric Used: stretch satin
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
After completing the floral top, I discovered that it didn't need the zipper in the back, so I took that out & sewed up the CB seam.
I didn't bother with the side splits in the hem either.
I then made the emerald green satin top & decided to do a gathered neckline instead of the pleats. close up of pleat detail green top with gathered neckline
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes I imagine I will, as this is a nice basic shell top that is fast to sew.
I can see a few more of these tops being made, & might try one with the darts as well to give it mor shape (I think it needs to be tucked in when made without the darts, as its a bit loose fitting for my liking)
I will probably make the dress at some point too.
I would recommend this pattern as it is a nice quick pattern suitable even for beginners....
Conclusion: great pattern, nice & fast, & easy to sew.
