Recent Things...

Wednesday, June 6, 2012


This is a top I recently made for an old friend who contacted me through facebook.  She showed me a picture of something she liked, but the original was looser fitting.  She wanted something that would fit a little closer to the body.  So, I used my favourite Burda Style Pattern (This Raglan Sleeve Tee), made the necline a little more scooped, changed the long sleeves to cap sleeves, and added a large heart cut-out to the back. The cut out is bound with navy bias binding.  Binding a heart, and getting the binding to lay flat was quite the feat of patience!


I'm seeing lots of heart cut outs around this season.  What do you think of this trend? I think it's pretty cute, but a cutout this size might not work for someone like me who can't easily get away without wearing a bra!

  1. Wow this looks gorgeous! I do like this trend, but it can be hard for us ladies who need a bra! Those sticky things you can put on around the front to protect your modesty aren't the nicest thing in the world to wear! http://thesecondhandrose.blogspot.co.uk
