I just can’t stay away from the Frock by Friday events over at Grosgrain!
They have been a lot of fun, and a great way to sew from my stash. I seem to be sewing more dresses than I can wear, though! The June FbF was to lengthen a summery shirt, so I took the opportunity to create the shirt version instead.
Fabric: Anna Maria Horner’s Little Folks voile
Pattern: Tara from BurdaStyle
I stitched the elastic casing directly to the shirt instead of just enclosing the elastic in the seam allowance. This forms a neater look.
I used bias binding to finish the to edges of the front and back.
I eliminated the sleeves and used bias binding for straps.
Overall, I like this top. The fabric is really soft and it fits well. The pattern was really easy to use, and I may use it again to sew up a few camis to sleep in. This top may even end up in the pj drawer – look how well it matches my cutie “lingerie” pj pants!
