Friday night was a success! I managed to finish sewing my garment. I'm not sure why I procrastinated doing this because it was actually a very easy garment to sew! It probably took me about 20 minutes to complete. The pattern says it takes one hour to complete and that's about right - from cutting and assembling the pattern, to cutting the fabric then sewing it, not much longer than one hour in total. The edges of the fabric are left raw which cuts down on the sewing time. I think it almost looks like a dancers workout top, with the boatneck and raw edges.
The finished product
The top is actually quite long on one side; if it was a little bit longer I could wear it as a dress. In fact, I might do that. I think I might alter the pattern a little so it's a bit longer and will cover my legs a bit more.
The other side is pretty indecent but as you can see from the above photo, it's quite long on one side.
And lastly, my outfit for today wearing my new top
The light blue colour in the fabric matches a pair of hoop earrings I have perfectly! Bonus! I tucked it into my skirt as the bottom part is pretty fitting and would really only look good with leggings. I am definitely not a leggings gal though so I will only be wearing it tucked in I think.
My next sewing project will be a dress, for spring!
