... and while in the groove, number two from a 1 meter piece of Swiss cotton, bought in Singapore a couple of years ago.
Front - the side slit helps it sit nicely
Narrow facings - with 2cm deep top-stitching
Unembellished, this is a great pattern for small lengths of special fabric or remnants (as in the first top reviewed below)
A simple sleeveless shell top adapted from Simplicity 2599 with styling and finishes from a favourite RTW top.
8 shaped to 10 at the hips
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
A little, but it looked more like the RTW inspiration top (in green linen on left and wearable muslin on right)
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The pattern is a great basic to develop a sleeveless block.
A lovely quality stretch woven viscose/poly/lycra satin crepe from The Fabric Store. This was a remnant piece so only 1m x 100cm wide, the perfect amount for this top. Chosen for its colour! I debated which side to use but in the end decided on the crepe.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
My top is adapted from Simplicity 2599 so there are quite a few changes, some style and some fit adjustments.
* Neckline lowered
* Shoulder width narrowed
* Armscye reshaped
* Drafted narrow facings for neck and armscye
* CB seam removed
* Length shortened by 2.5 cm
* Slit added on side at 110cm from bottom edge
Neckline and armscye stay stitched to limit stretching and seam tape used to stabilise back neck edge (shoulder seams were also stabilised with fusible seam tape)
Narrow neck facing (same on armscye)
Neck and sleeve facings stitched in place
Slit at side makes it very comfortable to wear
Side view with top-stitched side seam
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes to both, I have more plans than time for this very simple shell pattern.
Fabric was purchased yesterday and top was finished today, so a quick turn-around, and in time for the spell of hot weather that is on our doorstep. Simple but just right
