A Garment A Week – Week 48 – 02/12/16
Here it is Beth! We’d been talking about making some summer tops and dresses the other week so I thought I’d give this style of top a go
It’s cut from one piece of fabric on the fold with the head hole cut out of the middle. The neckband is invisible binding (which I’ve learnt is called French binding lol).
There are three rows of shirring elastic on the front and back which don’t go to the edge of the circular shape. Then the front and back are joined around 10cm above and below the elastic.
Then the hem/edging is a tiny double rolled hem.
I cut the back slightly longer than the front too.
The elastic could be a bit lower but it feels really comfortable on me at this height.
I really like the feel of this top on and it looks really nice. Definitely need to make it in some nice light summer colours!
