This is huge for me. I sew clothes for my daughter and other children all the time, but this is FIRST time I’ve ever sewn anything for myself. Please excuse the photos….I was straight out of the pool……
I followed Rae’s Spring Ruffle Top Tutorial on Sew Mama Sew but made a few changes:
1. Obviously I left off the ruffles. I also omitted the “arm divots” in the tutorial.
2. For the shoulder straps and top band I folded the fabric in half, opened it up and folded the ends in so that they were 4 layers thick and then topstitched all the way around. This made the shoulder straps a little narrower and I made the top band a little wider to compensate for the extra fold.
3. I made the top slightly larger so that it was “billowy” (if that is a real word).
I used just a plain white myslin. My husband says it looks like a nighty……but I might wear it EVERYDAY with my jean cutoff staples!
