sewing saturday! patchwork crop top
Sewing Saturday! Last week, I asked you guys to tell me which project I should sew next - a quilted cotton crop top or rose colored peter pan collar blouse. Well, the votes were equal for each project.. so I'm going to sew both blouses - next week, the rose hued blouse and this week, the crop top!
What you'll need for this pattern - fabric (about half a yard), double fold bias tape, and the usuals - an iron included.
To begin, I pressed the pattern pieces and fabric, laid out the pieces on top of the fabric (right sides together) at the fold, then cut the pieces.
The front called for bust darts and the back piece for two back darts, so I sewed those in and pressed them. I then stitched the front and back pieces together at the shoulder seams.
Once the two pieces are connected, it's time to stay stitch. I stay stitched the arm holes, bottom edges, and neck opening at the seam allowance, then trimmed them with pinking shears. I then sewed the bias tape to these openings, sewing the side seams together when I was finished.
Finished product! What would you pair this top with? I'm thinking denim overalls and my saddle shoes.
That's all for this week! Happy weekend!
