Hello All!
Thanks for taking a peek!
I am excited to say I have been making a few too many bags & not enough clothing due to my lack of confidence.  Huh
So, I decided, enough of that nonsense, just go for it! So, I did.....Here are the results. I noticed in the back, it has a bit of "bagginess" but I am not very good with darts....oh how I dread darts.
Be kind to me, lol.

Comments welcomed & appreciated!

haha that's the opposite for me - i've always liked making clothing but only recently gave the bag thing a shot. i think it's the lining that freaked me out a bit.

your first attempt looks good Smiley i find knits really good to work with when i just started out, so that may help with gaining confidence!

Looks good to me. I don't see any bagginess. Think it looks great.

I think you did a great job! I love the little lacy trim you used.

Nice fabric trim, and the trim looks really cute & feminine.

I fear darts too  Cheesy
Really nice top, though, as somebody said above, it's really feminine.
