I had bought this fabric thinking I'd make some kind of crazy, over-the-top princess dress for Sylvie, but when I spotted it there in my stash a couple of weeks ago, I thought "I'm gonna make something for Myself".
So, I made something for Myself. It's New Look 6921, if you're interested. If you read my sister's blog you'll know that she's a rocket-scientist type of sewer. When I was talking about this top I told her I was going to leave out the interfacing and topstitch to hold the edges in place instead of understitch. She said something that sounded like this "Blah blah blah de blah blah layer the seams blah blah blah understitch as far as possible blah blah blah sit properly blah de blah blah just use light interfacing blah blah blah." Meanwhile, I thought about what to cook for dinner that night.
So I made the top, completely ignoring all her good advice, Now that it's finished I can see it would have been better if I'd used light interfacing, and understitched instead of topstitched, but you know what? I like it anyway. It's so bright and cheerful.
