I loved the fabric in the jacket, but it's not quite right for this top.
There's not enough drape in it to lay properly - you can see here it hangs away from the body and looks like a box.
The back view isn't much prettier. Still lookin like a tent here....
Hang on, I think I might have a brown belt somewhere - let's give it a try. Bingo! Much better with the belt.
Yes - there is a waist hidden under all of that fabric.
Back looks better too - although I should have taken more time to adjust the fullness before taking this picture!
Here's a recap with belt and without..
My new total for yardage sewn since the beginning of July is 29 yards. I'm getting there slowly!
My next project is going to be a complicated one and will use alot of fabric. Stay tuned for a post on those project plans soon!
Until next time - Happy Sewing!
