This is hot off my machine. I'm calling it my muumuu top because before I sewed in the elastic, that is exactly what it looked like. I fell in love with this fabric. It's a cotton lace and so very soft. And yellow, a color I adore. Then I went looking for a pattern and this is what I found. It turned out to be VERY blousy!!!
Aaaa! I spent a few hours thinking - how am I going to save this? I love this fabric! I spent more then I wanted to on this fabric! Needless to say, I cut off 2 inches and added an elastic casing. And voila! A cute summer top emerged. Here's the back view:
I love all the pleats - on the front, the back, and the sleeves. I made view A - the green print on the pattern envelope - without the tie and buttons down the front. I put three small buttons in the front on the neck band. Here is the up close view:
Since it's see-through, I've got on a nude camisole underneath. This was fast and fun to make, especially after I figured out how to make it less moo-moo-ish. What do you think?
