Dress or top? B5562 view D

I’m so pleased this top has recently been reviewed by Shannon, Lori, Sharon and Amanda. All of their reviews were very helpful, so this is my last fabric stash contest entry on PR review.


This grey version is a toile. I used the medium size and the fabric is a medium weight poly/wool/spandex blend knit. It has two-way stretch and I inserted elastic in the seam casing on the shoulder wrap piece. I found the fit needed lots of slivering off, so the next version is a small. The sleeves were too wide as Shannon found so I’ve taken out three inches out of the wrist width to the elbow.

The grey fabric was bought from Pitt Trading in San Souci early last year, in the hope of making into something last winter. It’s now coming to the states with me today, in my hand luggage.

The second version is still view D but a dress and is the small size. The shoulder wrap piece is still the same length but I’ve placed the gathers above the bust point.
The fabric was bought from knitwit early last year and I’m actually stoked that I’ve now ploughed through each piece I bought at the time.
So now my sewing machine is taking a break while I fabric shop next week.
Cheers and bubbles everyone.
