Simplicity 2725 first top is done

 Well my first top is done and has been for about a week now. Surprisingly it fit almost straight from the envelop. My only adjustments were to lower the bust dart a bit and widen the neckline so I would not need a zipper in the back. I will say that learning to make my own patterns is helping me to understand adjustments and how to make them.
 The fabric I used was cotton with some stretch to it that my sister bought me from Morocco a few years ago it reminds me of the  cotton poplin I had a while back.  While it is cotton I think I'll have to wait until it cools down a bit more before i wear it. Yesterday at 116 degrees, I try to keep my clothes as light and airy as possible.

The pattern again is Simplicity 2725, its also my level 3 garment from my learn to sew blog. Its pretty much a basic top with a neck facing, gathered sleeves with small cuff. The top is also very a-line so if you have hips it will accentuate them.

I have already started my second top and hope to be done before the end of this week I have about 2 weeks to finish at least 3 more tops for my contest entry. I hope I can get at least three done in time but I know I'll have the minimum of two done in time God Willing.

Until next time happy sewing.
