Not loving this top!
I hate this top!
There I have said it! Started off loving it, loved the fabric, “borrowed” from Mum’s fabric stash actually, but now its finished I'm thinking erk! It has just been a nightmare from the start, front and back panals weren't the same when I had sewed the shoulder seams, so I cut an inch off the side of each of the front panal. Totally puckered up the arm hole hems, first experience with biased binding for a long time and such a tiny difficult circle to sew! Then using my rolled hem foot with overlocked seams??! How does that work?!! Shall I go on? Haven't even mentioned the back doing up with a button hole and fudging the overlap!
But I continued to the end. Now its all done though, don't think I really want Milly to wear it! And I was thinking of doing a matching twirly skirt... The pict of her wearing it below was taken before I did the hem. Look how much I cut off! She's asleep now so I'll try and get a finished shot later on and add it. At least this daughter willing models her clothes without issues!
