New Look top

Hello friends! I hope you're having a nice week :) A quick post to show you a New Look top I made out of Sevenberry fabric, it's a traditional Japanese print with off-white fans/scales on a navy background. It was easy to make BUT:
- I should have used the proposed facings for the collar, I don't know what possessed me to decide on folded bias instead, it was more complicated and it isn't as flat as the facings
- I should have lifted the shoulder seams, the fabric tends to sag above my bust and in the back, ahem it's not very flattering :(
- I'm really wondering if I should have made it one size smaller.
Despite these problems I love the fabric so much I think I'll wear it anyway! It looks good with black jeans/trousers and I may even make a black skirt to wear with it (I'm not giving up on girly stuff!).

See you!

  5. Hello,

    Je préfère continuer en français car j'ai vu que tu le parles également'JCA). Je trouve superbe ton top... Est-ce un patron japonais???

  6. Coucou Aurélia, merci pour le compliment! C'est un patron New Look que j'ai commandé sur le site Tu devrais essayer, ils livrent partout et certains patrons sont téléchargeables :)

  7. I think you've done a great job. I think I've given up on that pattern, it just seems to need too much toiling to get a good fit. xxx

  8. Super cute! The bow detail is great.
