As promised, I finished my top today. I’m totally sold on full bust adjustments now. I don’t think I’ve owned a top that fit me so well as this across the chest that wasn’t terribly large everywhere else. I’ll be doing fba’s from now on.
I love the way the sleeves turned out too–I think they’re too wide to be straps, but it’s probably a matter of semantics. At any rate they have a lovely crisp feel to them. I lined them with muslin which feels very nice. The fabric is Joel Dewberry chesnuts in white. As a rule, I’m not a fan of quilting fabrics for clothing because I think the drape fee;s a little weird to me, but it being summer and me not being able to find a lot of prints this year, I broke my own rule. At any rate this is wonderfully comfortable and cool which is much needed in the heat. It makes me want to grill something tasty.
