After some procrastination, I decided I wanted to sew a spring top for myself to enter in the Spring Top Contest hosted by Made by Rae. The difficulty for this project was that I had chosen a fabric ( a beautiful voile from Valori Wells) but I only had a metre to play with.
Finally I chose to morph two patterns I had: the free Sorbetto tank pattern from Colette, and another Colette pattern, the Pastille dress.
I bound the sleeves and neck line with a quilting style binding. Next time I will make it narrower as 1/2” was too bulky for the curves.
Overall it turned out well, but next time I will add a bit more room at the bust.
I’ll let you know later this week if it made it into the finals!
