I know you are in shock right! haha I have finished my first ever top!
I have to say I am pretty impressed with myself and as well as learning how to make a top I have also learnt some lessons:
1. I can not follow a pattern to save my life, I may have mentioned this before so maybe this is more of a confirmation….
2. I do not like the restriction of following a pattern BUT then again being my first top I had no idea how to make the changes I visualised in my head, so this is probably what is known as a catch 22.
3. I do not like making clothes, if I was to make clothes again it would have to be with some form of support SO watch out Mother-in-law I am heading your way! I am much more of a visual person when it comes to learning (another thing that I did not know about myself!)
Anyway here it is:
Soooo many things wrong with this top! haha
I completely did the shoulder joints wrong (ok there may be a more technical term for it…)
It puckered in a few places.
I sewed all the way down the side when I was meant to stop about three quarters down, I didn’t want to start unpicking as it may all come apart as I had not realised my mistake until right near the end so decided to leave it as it is, with no hem (again is that the right word? haha I really am so clueless, I had to ask my husband what the word was)
As soon as I tried it on my first thought was “oh dear, what was I thinking?!” I look like a person with a rectangle attached to my body, to be fair I wanted to make a deeper neckline but had no idea how to do it.
Even with all its faults I LOVE it, my first ever top and it is completed! I will never wear it (I am not completely crazy) However I am proud of it.
I can only improve right?
