Also, before we get started, photoshop has kicked the bucket on my computer, so you're just gonna have to deal with crappy photos. Womp womp.
I got it in the mail and had no idea what to make with it. Eventually, when spring turned to summer and my life calmed down, I decided I was going to make me a top. So I present the Quirky Top.
I used the bodice from my staple, Simplicity 2444, but the altered copy I made for the Mad Men Challenge over here. That part more or less went okay. It was a little snug, but I could still squeeze into it.
|Workin' it just for your enjoyment.|
Now what? I can't just leave it.
I used a big heavy metal jacket zipper for the back and a vintage button from my stash for the enclosure.I wanted the peplum to go all the way around, hence the, ahem, interesting closure in the back. Whatevs, it works.
|Yeah, I tried something at the bottom of that one seam and, yeah, I don't know....|
Overall, I don't know if I'm going to get much wear out of this because, honestly, I think I realized I'm not a peplum girl, and also, I kind of have to take short breaths still! The peplum makes my hips look way bigger than they really are and I also like breathing. But, I learned how to use seam binding on the whole inside of this!!!!! Which is pretty flippin' awesome!
So if nothing else, that's pretty cool.
What about you? Have you ever made something that really doesn't suit you? Would you wear this top?
Thanks again, Sally!!! :)
