Sharing My Passion For Creating My Own Clothes
Comments I love wearing eyelet this time of the year! How darling is this set! You look ready for a beach vacay!
Very cute and girly, perfect for the Summer and holidays two set! I love this matching set! I love the off the shoulder look and those wedges!
Such a cute and airy looking outfit, looks perfect for warm weather. I always love cute sets like this! How sweet is this combo?! I adore how you styled it. Especially with the hat. Need it for vaca! You can never go wrong with eyelet! I love this set and how you styled it!
However, I did wear this wedge version most of the day yesterday and they were ridiculously comfortable. That dress is adorable! I love how you styled it. Eyelet sensational and preppy pretty with the navy!
Looks so good with white sandals! I can totally see this dress working from so many occasions — from graduation parties to a outdoor wedding!! So pretty on you girl! That blue dress is so gorgeous! And I love how you paired it with the white bag! Such a pretty contrast! Such a gorgeous navy dress. Navy is just the best during summer!
I love these shoes in the wedge! The flat has been on my radar, but now I think I must have the wedge. This is such a cute dress! I love navy and I love that dress.
The eyelet details and how you matched it with those shoes…perfection. Eyelet may be my most favorite fabric- love your blue top! Alice looks like she's tall and really wears a tunic well. I love the collar and band. I was wondering what method you use when cutting in the armholes. I have a bunch of patterns from the 60s that have this feature but when they don't I usually just fold a tuck. Do you cut and slide the shoulder piece? What an awesome friend you are to make such a gorgeous custom fit top for her.
Really nice top Beth. I have had good luck with Newlook patterns as well I am loving eyelet and have been considering a top lately! BTW, this is beautiful!!! I've got to go look to see if I have this pattern. What a fabulous top! Your friend looks gorgeous in it: So beautiful and certainly very becoming on your friend. I forget about silk organizer for interfacing. I should have used it on a voile dress that I'm almost done with.
Was that placket hard to do? I tried one recently and I had to add some camouflage over the top of it. Skirts would be nice. The trending ones have uneven wrap hemlines. Could you include some of those? I want to sew some trendy things as well as classics! It is entirely possible that I have achieved peak summer top perfection with my latest sewing project.
For which I will take partial credit - as this top is for my friend Alice. Who looks so very good in blue. Which we have already established here - a look at a blue silk jersey dress I sewed for her.
She is always in search of the perfect tunic top, summer or winter version. Recently she did a big clean out and gave me a bunch of patterns she will never use, including the little gem that became this top.
The minute I finished it I started again on another one, for myself in a small remnant of silk so I will show that one soon. Perfection in a summer top, right? Of course the color is fantastic - and this fabric is really nice. She bought it in May when we were shopping over at Stone Mountain.
I was just there on Monday and I think they still have this color. Now that I've seen this one I want a version for myself in emerald green, although my web searching has not turned up that color way. Here is the pattern which at first glance might not look very promising. It has a date of on the envelope so long out of print. And now I will give my encouragement to try New Look patterns. I'm not sure if they are readily available in other countries but I think so as I have seen them on plenty of UK and Australian sewing blogs.
They include all the sizes in one pattern envelope. Although their size range is usually more limited than Simplicity or Vogue.
Looking at the back of the pattern envelope this one is sizes US , EU size , bust measure for those sizes they list as 32"". I find their pattern markings to be excellent - and their instructions are good. But the best part of their patterns typically is that they have more than one view in the pattern envelope. In fact they often have at least two completely different looks.
Value for your money. And are vaguely tunic top-y. They have some dress patterns that include mix and match components with different skirt, neckline and sleeve variations where you could make 10 different dresses if you were obsessively inclined to put a pattern through its paces. ALSO - for those of you who think Simplicity patterns have excessive ease, particularly in the neck and shoulders - which is my personal nemesis in pattern fit - then take a look at New Look. I find they have a smaller frame across that area and don't tend to be as large.
I have mostly made dresses and tops from New Look patterns including my favorite NL knit top. Although this one might be my new favorite: Lately I have been doing a lot of PDF downloads from the Burda website, as well as a couple of Bootstrap custom patterns and while those are great it is such a pleasure to just use a tissue pattern from the envelope.
No printing, no taping, finished garment measurements printed right on there, no seam allowances to add. Other than the slightly tricky issue of how to interface that placket and collar.
