Wow, I am so behind on posting about completed clothing. So, in the interest of catching up, I’m going to keep this post short.
Today, I’m showing you a yoked sweetheart top that I made using the same pattern I used last fall to make the sweetheart top with the lace yoke.
I made this top in May (Yep, I’m a full month behind :-/). You may remember it from my last week of Me-Made-May.
The shorts in the picture are the navy blue ones that I made last summer.
I topstitched along the edge of the yoke, and I know you can’t tell in the picture, but the neckline is also topstitched. My twin needle setting was being a pain in the rear when I was trying to hem my sleeves. Depending on the material, it can be really difficult to find the tension and stitch length sweet spots. I finally just gave up, said, “whatever” and sewed them the way you see here. I know there shouldn’t be a ridge between the rows of stitching, but we’ll just call it a “design feature.” ;-D
Well, there ya’ go, a quick post to let you know that I’m still here and I don’t plan on disappearing over the summer (as I’ve been known to do ;)). I probably have about ten things (mostly separates, as that was my greatest summer wardrobe gap) in the to-be-blogged line up, so stay tuned.
