Sewn: White Silk Crop Top

Sunday, October 29, 2017



(Ignore the fact that this is the most awkward photo of me ever. I didn't get many pictures because it started to rain so we'll just have to deal with my inability to pose. haha)

I made a deal with myself. If I made this shirt, I had to make something with color next time. Because I legit have a problem, there is just something about white! I promise the next project (actually the second to next project because I made two white crop tops when I made this :P) I will make something with color.


I made this shirt from fabric I found at Joann's. I liked the slight print to it, but it's very see-through so this shirt needed to be fully lined. That was fine though, I like the drape and feel better that way anyways. I just used the same fabric for both layers, I was too lazy to go to the fabric store again.. 


The pattern is self-drafted using this book. Best thing I ever did was get that book and a sloper in my measurements. I love being able to customize pattern pieces and not have to deal with all the differences in fit when you buy commercial patterns. 

That being said, I wish the neckline of this shirt was less wide. I should have caught that, I didn't make a muslin before hand so didn't notice until I had already cut the fabric. Hate when my laziness comes back to bite me.. Oh well, next time I'll at least know what to change. 



I didn't make the skirt. I was pumped when I saw it at the store though, isn't that embroidery incredible? I want to learn how to embroider really badly, it just intimidates me. Needlework in general man, how do people do it? My sister is this amazing knitter and I'm always wishing I had her skills, and then this friend I follow on Instagram, man she's like this freaking amazing embroiderer. It makes me so in awe of their skills. One of these days I will learn. Or attempt to, I think that's a better way to put it. haha
