After Studio Faro has solved the puzzle of this vintage pattern Advance 8190 I decided to give it a try.
I have dug out this light pink jersey and after making sure there is enough fabric to make a wearable test model I fist started to make a pattern.
As I mentioned I decided to adjust the pattern (sleeves) as suggested by the Studio Faro.
(Above pictures are taken from the Studio Faro blog – btw … above line – neckline / front wrap – the total length is 73 cm divided into 25 cm and 48 cm – not 45 cm. Unless it is meant to have in the middle 25 cm and 28 cm in the centre front.)
It looks like I will make the sleeves even more narrower…
Making of the pattern went fast – it was not a rocket science
So now all two pattern pieces are cut off waiting to be processed further. What looks like neck line – it is actually waist with waistband… just to make it even more confused .
I am going to follow the instruction prepared by Studio Faro. It is actually exactly as easy as it is written on the pattern envelope – 3 easy steps … PIN … CUT … SEW . It as well remind me a top which long, long – very long – ago my mother made for me – only without sleeves.
I will try to finish this top tomorrow.
In my Inspiration map I have found out more similar wrap tops – which I adore!
The below pattern I have bought by Decades of Style Pattern Company – it is time to make it as well… it is so elegant.
