I have quite a few unblogged projects from throughout the year. I'm going to try and do some quick catch-ups, because this blog is my main record-keeping for my sewing and I like to have a record.
I don't have a good block for self-drafted tops. I have drafted several different blocks by different methods, including Aldrich, Bunka and the European Cut. None of them is perfect and I sort of fudged all 3 together for this. I still need to sort out a basic block.
This top sits better with other clothes. It is quite fitted in the waist, and the skirt is high-waisted, so I think the skirt is stopping the top from sitting correctly in these photos. I guess I need to either add more ease to the waist or wear it with clothes that sit just below the waist.
I scrounged the fabric from one of my sisters, which was left-over after I helped her make a dress. Fair trade, I thought, fabric for labour. I love the colour and it has an interesting texture as well.
