April Animal print done!


Well I finished my top Vogue 8977 and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. It was very easy to make it all came together well. I didn't make any adjustments. I made view A but with length D so on me it is quite long but that's what I prefer.
The pleats on the neckline work well. The back is my favourite part of the top. I thought it may be too low but it is fine.
The fabric drapes really well and it feels lovely next to the skin. The fabric I bought from Tessutis.
My inspiration was the animal print and denim so I had to pair it with my denim jacket.
I am happy with how this pattern turned out. I will make it again but this time with sleeves and maybe the shorter length. I really enjoyed making this top.
Happy Sewing!

  3. This looks lovely - and your amber beads are so nice with it. Good work on the back - not easy to get these sorts of backs to sit well.

    1. Thank you. When something works for me its often good luck rather than good management.

  4. This is an interesting top with the details. Your fabric choice was perfect as it allows the top to show the draping.
