Love Notions – Forte Top

I made the Forte Tunic back in late November when I was down with the cooties. I finally have taken photos of it and am able to share. What I didn’t know was that Love Notions was putting their entire website on sale for the new year. So before we get much farther, this awesome pattern is on sale for 30% off which makes it only $7.00!

I swear this sunset is real, even though it looks too perfectly blended and beautiful.

I sewed up View A. The gathered skirt peplum style is always a favorite of mine as I like to conceal my stomach. I did add 2 inches to the length of the bodice because I prefer a little extra coverage. I also wish I would have add an extra inch to the flounce. I used the 4x with the included FBA and graded out to the 5x.Β  I picked the short sleeve option with the flounce. This is the scoop neck version. I love it! I love that Love Notions has recently expanded to 5x on their size chart and now I am included!!!
