Woohooo the Sewing Bee is back next week. It’s the only program I purposely sit down to watch each episode & it seems like we have been waiting so long for the new series.
So in celebration I thought I’d set myself my own little Challange as the perfect pattern is included in this months Sew Magazine, a top that can be made in an hour.
I am in need of more tops & with this pattern needing barely more than a metre I had a few suitable remnants. I chose style C which (instead of doing a FBA for this quick make) cut in a size 8 across the shoulders, for my narrow back, then a 12 bust/ waist down to a 10 hips. Pattern traced & cut, I applied the interfacing in preparation.
So off I went sewing away, instructions in front of me, finishing edges as I went. All was going great until I realized I was following the instructions for the sleeved version..aaahhhhh. Out comes the seam ripper 😩
Step away from the machine, your time is up. Half way down the second side seam the hour is up.
Like the shape of this style & will make the others too. The size I cut worked well but I think I’ll take in very slightly under arms. It feels comfortable & I’m wearing it for work today, in fact that’s where these pics are taken so sorry for the slightly creased look & distracted expression 😃
