Making a list of intended projects if the surest way to not keep to the list. At least, so it seems to be for me.
This long weekend (we have a 3-day weekend here) I intended to sew a bit, the last weeks I didn't get a lot done. And I succeeded. The pants and the black BWOF top only need hemming, so I hope to show pictures of those two projects (that were on my list) tomorrow. This afternoon a made a wrap top.
Recently I bought a simple wrap top that I already intended to copy, and this week I saw a video from DKNY on the many ways to wear wrap tops (thank you Adriana for providing the link), which immediately inspired me to make a top with a longer wrap than I originally planned. I had a good look at the video two or three times to see the details like how long is the back, how long the wrap, any other details that need attention?
I took Jalie 2449 to start with, but any basic T-shirt pattern will do and made it as wide as the fabric, ended up with a bit more than the fabric width in fact.
When I tried it on the weigth of the fabric made the wrap go to the floor, so I cut of 40 cm in the end of the total length.
This is the pattern for the top on the fabric. On the left is the original line of the pattern for side seam and armhole/shoulder. I made the shoulder going up a bit to a sort of collar both on the front and the back pattern.
And here the result in various ways of wearing it.
