Charmed by this vintage pattern of wrap top (Advance 8190) I could not wait to finish it.
It was really easy – 3 easy steps … PIN … CUT … SEW .
First I have joined canter back – following advice of Studio Faro.
The next step was to sew sleeves and neck edges. Then I have joined two centre backs together and sewn sleeves.
Slowly the whole top start to take a shape.
In order to attach the waist belt I have pinned the bodice inside the belt between the notches and sewn it with the overlock.
When I turned it inside out I have now nice clean connection between the bodice and the waist band.
I already see that I will need to narrow the sleeves at wrists – but first I will have to put it on. I am very curious how it lay on me comparing to the picture on the pattern envelope
And here it is! I just put it on my dress form to take a picture.
I love the whole concept of this pattern – easy, feminine – very 50’s. After this pattern is altered I will make sure that the next time I will cut bodice double (fold as well on the neck line). Especially when working with such light weighted jersey it could be handy.
Tomorrow follow-up … maybe having enough time I will work on the dress as well ….
