Once again, using one of my recent aquisitions from Cotura Fashions, I made a new top. My foundation for this top is NewLook 6648, which I have made previously four times. This time though, I wanted a little less of a batwing effect. Whether I achieved it though, I am not sure. To reduce the under arm bulk, I added 1.5cm to the shoulder seam at the cuff end tapering out to nothing at the neck. I then removed the same amount at the cuff, tightening the curve under the arm and straightening the side seam. I then shortened the sleeve and added a cuff.
I opted not to gather the hip band, instead cutting a piece of elastic to the gathered length and stretching while zig zagging to secure in place. I did this to avoid the gathering stitching from breaking.
There is not a lot left to say abut this top that I haven't said before. It will definitely be a useful addition to my spring wardrobe.
So why is there a 1.7 tonne bronze bull sitting on top of that piano, I hear you ask? Well this is one of a number of artworks that dot the city in the name of making our barren landscape a little more interesting.
