my first top from scratch! i'm so excited, and to celebrate, i will bombard you with information you don't care about, and photos!!
i set the camera up on a timer to take these photos, which has the effect of you waiting and waiting, then saying "why the hell isn't it working" and going to move for the camera....and the flash goes off in your face.
this below photo is me just about purse my lips and swear inwardly and grab the camera. it snapped me JUST as this idea was crossing my mind...
anyways, the top is made out of....i dunno. some sort of acrylic wool type thing i found at spotlight and nabbed before i had a use for it.
i don't even know what that type of fabric is called...it comes all pre knitted, but doesn't unravel as you cut. the wonders of the modern world.
not knowing how to sew properly, i just cut shapes as i saw fit. which is why one shoulder seam is on my shoulder, and the other is down my arm...
red eye removal makes me look creepy...
the major problem with the top is that i DID figure out which way the fabric stretched...and then for some stupid reason, sewed it all wrong. so i added the band at the bottom stretching the right way, to stop the whole bloody thing from rolling up around my neck like a bloody scarf.
anyway, that is all! i'm uber happy. it's dodgy, but hey, i made my first top!! yay!
