Finally finished the Sis Boom Dana Top pattern I bought from Etsy. I had a very hard time with the neckline and zig-zag stitching. I stitched and unstitched it several times in hopes of getting it right. Unfortunately I have several little puncture holes in the ruffles. Hoping, maybe, they’ll go away a bit when I wash it. After changing needles and playing with the tension the zig-zag stitching came out a bit better. Not amazing but a lot better. Here is me in the finished top.
I definitely have to take it in. It fits me a bit wide. I knew it might be. When it came to picking a size I preferred going a size up rather than down. I figured it would be much easier to take it in. I think I will also re-do the hem. It puckered a bit. You can see it a bit in the right hand side of the photo.
So, will I make this pattern again? Yes…in due time. I think I need to put some time between me and this pattern. Not sure if it was meant for someone a bit more skilled. I’ll give it another go once I make a few more pieces. I’d love to have it in a turquoise color, and shorter.
Next up? I think I will give the Port Elizabeth pattern a go. It’s free on Burda Style. Take a look if you’re interested in making a light summer top.
Until next time!
