I’m trying to catch up on posting some of my finished items. Unfortunately, my photography is letting me down. Most photos are just not good enough for sharing on this blog. 🙁
This top was made last year in November. It’s the Tessuti Lisa dress pattern as a top.
As with all Tessuti patterns, I needed to make petite adjustments to the pattern. I guess I’m not tall enough for the pattern as drafted 🙁 like many things.
Unfortunately my petite adjustments were made after constructing the top part of the top/dress, including finishing all binding. Due to my fitting oversight, I pinched out the excess length from the shoulders and sewed the new seam down. It looks like a flat felled shoulder seam, but it’s a fitting adjustment. shhhh.
This fabric is a lovely, light, washed linen from Tessuti. I picked it up from the remnant table during one of my many visits.
I really like this top. The neck sits a little high due to my overlooked adjustments, but I often wear the buttons open to make it look a little more casual and a little less nun. 🙂
