I'm continuing with my bid to top up on my tops and completely ignore the fact that it's no longer Summer here. That's OK though because in 4 week's time I'm off on a summer vacation to the States so I need a holiday wardrobe!
Today I have the Knit Sweetheart Top from the "Gertie Sews Vintage Casual" book. This is the first pattern I've made from the book and it came together very nicely.
I sewed a size 4 with no alterations and it was the perfect fit - except the sleeve band turned out to be way too loose. This was my first time sewing a fitted knit garment and it didn't occur to me to check the fitting of the band, I just followed the pattern and went for it - I'll know next time.
I think I can get away with the frilly sleeve though and pretend it was just part of the design.
Stay tuned - more tops to come!
