The fabric is a lovely silk metallic fabric that I bought for this party dress last year. I initially ear marked the remnants for a tunic type dress for winter but had an epiphany last week while shopping my own patterns and Sewaholic Alma was what I came up with.
Like my last version , I made a size 6 and view A. I didn't have enough fabric for the facings, so used some black linen that I used for the waistband on my floral Sewaholic Thurlow shorts. I had a small remnant of grey stretch suiting and this was used for the armhole binding. It isn't quite the right grey but because it is under the armpits, it really doesn't matter.
I really need a lot more tops and skirts for work so you may see a lot more of this pattern. My top has now been worn twice to work and once above and I love, love, love, it! The combination of a gorgeous fabric and a really good pattern is hard to beat. Sewaholic patterns are really good patterns and I am yet to find one I don't like.
