Laurie, Lakaribane has pointed out on my blog that using wider seam allowances, an inch or so, when making a bias cut garment is a good idea, so as to take advantage of the self neatening properties of the bias. I'm going to incorporate this tip the next time I use the pattern.

Great-looking top. The print looks very nice on the bias.

Lovely review for a self drafted top. I too would like to do a bias for this style so your info here was note-worthy for me. I liked the detail on your blog and love the elephant print fabric. Thanks for the review.
