Another Project Runway top
This is Simplicity 2927. You can also add short sleeves or 3/4 length sleeves or make a dress instead of a tunic. I chose the sleeveless tunic. I found that it went together very easily. I really love this fabric, I bought it several years ago for $1.50 a yard at Hancocks. I used a green fabric for the button and the mock piping. It fits really well, I made a size 12. The only thing is the top back wants to poof out a little, I think I may go back and add darts on each side of the zipper so that it fits to my body. This would also make an adorable dress!
I also used my narrow hemmer foot for the first time. I wish I would have tried it sooner, I love how the hem came out. It wasn't perfect, but like anything, the more you use it, the better you get. I used this tutorial from the Threads website.
There is lots of great sewing information on this website, I also love the magazine.
So far I am really loving the new Project Runway patterns, I have several more to try out : ) They are very stylish and give you lots of different variations.
