June ALOYF Finish
This month I knew I had to get done a little early. Soon I'll be out of town enjoying some sister time!
This pattern was very easy once I got going. Cutting is definitely my least favorite part of garment sewing. This shirt is so comfortable. I love how cleanly the sleeves were installed with the cuffs finishing the look.
The fabric is a perfect fit for the pattern, too. I'm so happy I splurged and got it when I saw it and didn't wait until I was ready to sew. It's lightweight for summer and drapes nicely.
I think my favorite thing about this top is the buttons ... They're actually faux--sewn into both sides of the bodice. I didn't have to sew any buttonholes!
I have some Liberty of London Tana Lawn that I scored from Massdrop that I'm planning to use to make my next version of this top. I think I'll try adding a couple of darts in the back to make it a little more form-fitting ...
