Hi everyone. I spend most of my time over on the knitting board, but I recently got a functioning sewing machine after many, many years. My first project was a top from simplicity pattern 4823. I used some embroidered linen fabric. I left off the back ties because I didn't like them, and haven't done the arm hole facing because I'm lazy.



There's a few other pics of it on my blog if anyone's interested.

It's very pretty.  I love that fabric.

BTW, you Lelah is gorgeous!  I've started one knowing I wanted to do straps, but not sure how.  I'm bookmarking your blog for when I get to that part.  Smiley

That looks fab! The fabric is gorgeous, and the cut is flattering.

Great job!  Grin

I love this fabric and the top is so cute and flattering. I have some embroidered fabric in extremely bright colors which I've been puzzling over what to do with. You have inspired me to try something. Your top is awesome. I take shortcuts too and hardly ever do facings. Most patterns are improved  by changes of some kind, so don't worry about the ties. The top fits great without them!!

Yeah the neck facing made sense to me, you need that, but I'm not sure how the top would benefit from the arm hole facing. I think the pattern packaging reccomended something lighter as far as fabric. I could see how you may need the facings for shape in that case, but the linen is a stiffer fabric so I think it may add too much bulk in my arm pits.

Thanks for all the compliments guys.  Cheesy
