As you can see I have done a lot of sewing this past week. This is my second post in as many days. Again, Ellie and Mac came to my rescue! I recently received this gorgeous Poly Rayon Spandex fabric from Sly Fox Fabrics! Holy cow!! It is so much better in person.
Have you guys added mustard color to your closets yet? Because I seriously think you should. I know it is shocking that I went with a floral print but How was I suppose to resist this one? It is called Serenity. You can pick it up as just this print or in a bundle with modal jersey.
OK So now that pattern. Another Ellie and Mac for me! I am helping you guys out because their summer sale is still going on and everything is HALF PRICE!!
This is the Women’s Fireside Top. I loved the back cut out with a strap. I think it is a little different that some of my recent tops. It has a band from the scoop back to the V neck front. The directions were clear and my first even V neck looks great! I made a few modifications and I will tell you about them as we go.
So the first thing I changed was to make the shirt short sleeved. It comes with a Dolman sleeve, but includes an additional pattern piece for a lower sleeve. It is summer so I didn’t use it. I added roughly 1.5 inches to the width of the Dolman sleeve and then hemmed the raw edge.
Next thing I changed was not including the side vents. This happened mainly because I forgot about them as I was sergering along and didn’t want to unpick the seam. I am ok with the result. 🙂
So do you love the Women’s Fireside as much as I do? Get your copy here while it is 50% off. The price is $4.48, but only for a few more days!! Hurry! Also all Ellie and Mac patterns are 50% off so snoop around and shop shop shop!
