yes, sad to say, this was the last shirt I was going to enter for the Spring Top Week contest. I just finished it the other night. I had made a dress from the same pattern last summer, but this time the neck piece just didn’t want to cooperate. So I ripped seams, re-pinned, sewed it again, and again, but it finally worked out so it’s at least sort of wearable.
I really like the fit, I think I finally found what size works for me in Simplicity patterns. Hopefully I’ll wear it a bunch and I’d definitely say it’s the most comfortable top I’ve made. Yay for that, since the poor thing was sitting in my ‘to-finish’ pile for so long.
I love being able to pull something out of my work in progress pile and complete it, such a good feeling. I’ll be doing that more hopefully. The other thing I’ve been wondering about is the amount of scraps leftover from projects like this, I really find it difficult to think of the main print for anything but a shirt now, do you find it easy or hard to change your mind on what fabrics can be used for what once you’ve made them into something? Maybe I’m just crazy. But I do know that the fabric I used for these projects are definitely Christmas fabric now, darn.
