I am participating in "Starting at the Top" sew along. I completed my third version of this top yesterday. It was a sewing vacation day. I was bound and determined to complete it before the noon hour and I did! It is easy to do that when you sew something you have sewn previously.
This time I changed the 3/4 sleeves to shorten sleeves. I even decided not to hem the sleeves as I see unfinished edges on numerous tops in RTW. I did hem the top though using my coverstitch machine.
I love the drape of this neckline. My next version I may change the gathers at the shoulders to pleats and see how that looks. Fabric is from Fabric.com. It was not a fiddly knit to sew or work with; that is always a good thing.
Here I am wearing the top tucked in:
I am wearing it untucked here. I cut out quite a bit of fullness that I had in the other two tops. I removed 1inch from waist to hip on the back piece and 1.5 inches on the front from waist to hip. I like it much better this way.
While posing for these photos I also took photos of the completed Emma top also. Now that this is complete and I have worked through the neckline gathers, I will make another top soon.
