I originally purchased this fabric from The Remnant Warehouse for a shingle dress, Vogue 8904 and no matter how I tried I just couldn’t get it to sit right at my swayback even taking notice of all the very helpful blog reviews.
So this fabric has been marinating in my stash since then, still in pieces, so after seeing so many striped tops this year I decided it was the year to finally do something with the fabric.
Once again I have used KS 3740 as my base.
Michelle showed me a great trip for matching the stripes, using Steam-A-Seam you finger press this onto the right side of your fabric at the seam line and then slowly remove the tape and finger press your stripes together,
it worked a treat
The back has a seam as this works better for my sway back
I also used my A Binder on the Coverstitch to finish the neckline
This top also got a lot of wear during Winter and I have found more striped fabric in my stash so there could be another one appearing at some time.
