New Look 6025 top

Sunday, April 10

This weekend the weather was really beautiful. Unfortunately for me though, I had to go to Christchurch to see a friend who lost her dad, so I could not make good use of the sunshine. I came back today, and as soon as I got home, I started making the New Look 6025 top.

6025 Misses' Tunic or Tops  Sizes: 8 to 18 New Look Pattern - OUT

I decided to make View A, but as I progressed with the blouse, I decided to make the neck and sleeves more interesting. So I used some yellow bias tape I had at home, and added a black lace trimming to it. When cutting the fabric, I forgot to cut the right length, so I cut the hem too long. I fixed this by cutting off the excess fabric, and made an elasticated hem.

It was a really fast and easy blouse to make, and I will definitely make this top again. I will like to experiment more with trimmings, as I think they make projects more unique. Plus I find the process of deciding on how to alter your outfits really enjoyable as you get the chance to be creative.

My finished top.
