How is everyone doing? It has been over a month since I wrote a blog post. I’ve been sewing but haven’t taken the time to update my blog. I also have a few finished projects that still need to be photographed. I made this wrap top as part of the Minerva Maker team. This beautiful Lady McElroy crepe fabric was gifted to me by Minerva in exchange for a blog post on their website, minerva.com
I’ve wanted to sew Vogue 8833 for a few years but somehow I never got around to it. So many patterns, so little time. When I saw this crepe on Minerva’s website I knew I wanted to make this top with it. The pattern offers sleeve and collar variations but what caught my attention were the princess seams. They are not obvious in the pictures of my top because of the print but you can see them below in the line drawings from the pattern. The princess seam provide a nice shape to the top as well as fitting opportunities.
I like the fit of the top very much. People have asked me if the front gapes or stays closed. It stays closed securely. The top is very comfortable to wear. I like the depth of the neckline and I think the collar gives it a polished look. I didn’t make any alterations to this pattern.
Now that I’ve finally made this I plan on sewing other views from the pattern, especially a sleeveless version.
Thanks for stopping by to read my blog. I hope to be updating it with more of my completed projects in the not-too-distant future. In the meantime I hope this finds you safe and well.
