This is my second-to-last piece of fabric from Penny Fabrics in Sarasota (the last is a pink lace I can't wait to dive into). It is a silky cotton print that probably has some poly in it, too. I wanted to make a casual sleeveless top with the high-low hemline that seems to still be trending; something that feels a bit like this.
Unfortunately, I don't feel like I really nailed it. I used Simplicity 1872 , a Cynthia Rowley pattern, as a starting point. I wanted the gathered shoulder detail for a little interest. Here is how I cut the front on the fold, eliminating the wrap bodice:
Here is my final top, and actually, looking at the pic, I think it looks fine. the only part I'm not in love with is the neckline. For some reason, it feels like the neckline on scrubs to me. I don't know.
this. What do you think about that?
By the way, here is that pink lace and the pattern I'm planning to use. I want to finish this before October 11, when our little Tampa sewing group goes down to Penny together. I can't wait!
