It's time for another giveaway - Patrones #308. If you entered for the last one (#307) but were unsuccessful I'll add you into this one. Otherwise, make a comment expressing your interest before midnight next Wednesday Perth time and you'll be in the draw.
Summer has arrived as has the need for some new work clothes. I've made a couple of things from this Patrones. The first is Model 32 worn with skirt with tucks 14. I'll review the skirt in another post but here's the top in a black, white and red silk.
This is in the plus size patterns which are from Patrones sizes 50-58. I figured it is meant to be loose fitting in any case so used a very untechnical method of leaving off the seam allowances all over and taking a couple of centimetres off each of the side seams to grade it down. It seems to fit ok.
This is an easy top, well except for the collar which bamboozled me. I'm sure there is a sensible way of making the collar that has escaped me but with for anyone else who is making this top this is how I made it, copied off a RTW top. First the right hand side.
And then finally sew to the neck.
And finally hand sew the turned under edge to the neck seam. So it ends up looking like this.
I'm very happy with this one and now onto making another blouse from this Patrones.
