Cleaning the sewing room can yield fun surprises. Like this Meghan Peasant Top that was almost done – just needed hemming. Found it just in time for summer! How did I let this get buried?
Just a couple of comments:
- I made this out of double gauze fabric – nice and breezy for hot summers. Print is from Heather Ross’ Far Far Away collection by Kokka. I have a few yards extra that I listed in the shop. Sold!
- I’m really not this tan – in order to get the white to show up, my arms got all dark. And what can a Photoshop novice do? Post it as is, that’s what.
- Did you know that straight on shots don’t always look so flattering? I didn’t until now. Also, putting my arm on my hip gave me a little definition in the arm. I think I need to start lifting weights to define those biceps.
The pattern is downloadable (available here and here). Not super hard, but I had to spend quite a bit of time taping all the pieces together. Only change that was recommended to me by a couple of people was to cut the elastic longer than it calls for, then finding the right fit so that it isn’t too tight. I’m glad I did, ‘cuz who wants the blood supply to be cut off from their arms? Not me.
