As mentioned in the previous post, here’s another version of the Alice Top from SEW OVER IT’s new online class.
This time I used a lightweight jersey with a black and white owl print. Adorable, right? I’ve talked a bit about the online class and the construction of the pattern in the previous post. So if you want to know more about the pattern and the class, you can read about it here.
These are all the adjustments I made:
- The front neckline was gaping ever so slightly. I took out 2 cm on length from the front neckline at the shoulders.
- The sleeves were rather tight. I added 1 cm width at the sleeve seams.
- The fit at the waist was quite loose. I took out about 2 cm of width on each side an around the waist and about 1 cm around the bust.
The fit is much better now and the top more comfortable to wear, although the changes are probably hardly noticeable. I’m really pleased with this top and can’t wait to wear it more often! We’re having a heat wave at the moment, so anything with sleeves is out of the question.
Wanna hear a fun story?
I wore this top when I went out to a restaurant with my family. When I wanted to put it in the wash a few days later, I only then noticed that there were still pins in there! The little bust tab at the front was only secured by two pins on the inside. This was one of the times I was glad I’m quite flat-chested. Otherwise, eating out might’ve become quite uncomfortable…
Have you left the house pins still sticking in your clothes?
