Here is my finished top for MAGAM February. Based on Moda Diana no. 75 -3P size 34/36 with adjustment. You can see the detail of my work on the pattern grading and adjustment on my previous post.
This top is my second version of pattern no. 75 - 3P and I already cut another fabric for the third version. I love this pattern and this is one of my favorite top and I am planning to make more in the future, summer will be arriving soon and I need some short sleeve tops :)
The sewing process of this top is quite fun. Firstly I need to removed the shoulder darts (remember that my first version was too big at the shoulder and I have to add darts to make it right). Then I transfer all the pattern pieces on new sheet of papers. After that I cut fabric plus matching the striped, pin and sew the top.
The two tricky parts to sew this top was matching the striped and sew the neckline. My work on matching the striped was not so good but I really don't want to remove and sew it again.
And for the finishing neckline, I fold the seam allowance 1 cm at the neckline inside and stitch it using twin needle. I think the result is fine and the neckline laid nicely.
Here are the pictures of the finished top, front - side and back views,
I am enjoying flat sketches right now and the picture below is one of them that I made especially for this top.
And here is the closer look of the neckline that I stitched with twin needle. Beside that, I also top stitched the armhole with twin needle.
The last picture is the finishing sleeves hem and hem line, they were stitched with twin needle too with 1.5 seam allowances.
Almost forget to mention about the fabric, I used 2 yards of knit cotton in white and navy blue striped.
That's it for my today post, have a great weekend and happy sewing!
