A top for summer days ... or nights

After a while... I 'm sewing again!

I moved and I must find a place in the new flat to sew new projects.


  But now, I habe a new and nice sew corner :-)

I wanted to sew an easy top ... sleeveless for example! :-)

From Patrones 301 I found this lovely top.

We can't exactly see it but we can imagine it with the pattern figure.

I still can't read spanisch :-) so I must put the pieces together with my own experiences.

I cut a front and back facing with the same fabric, so that the top fits very good.
Ok, I recognise.. I hate bias so I mostly use these facing pieces.

But in this case.. it wasn't so clever...
because I choose a light cotton fabric in WHITE!
So that you can see where the facing is stoping.
On the back piece it doesn't matter but front... it's not so cute :-(

I used for the first time these art of button but - I hate bias :-) - I used fine white belts to the over size.

I didnt know where I had to put exactly the loop on the neckline...
Perhaps I should have sewn it just till the center of the front...
because I can't definitly make the loop like the pattern photo :-)

But I think it's ok so :-)

But I love this long loop and the stand up collar.

But the most I love is how the top is making great shoulder :-)


  1. Your new sewing space looks very nice - lots of lovely light from that window! I love your new top - the neckline bow is beautiful!
