WOW!!! It seems like you all loved the striped shirt in the previous post. I've got hundreds of views from it. Thank you so much for stopping by!
Onto the Esme top from Sew Liberated. I am so happy to finish it today. The pattern was quite simple. I have some tips to help make it easier for those who would like to give this pattern a try. Please note that all opinions are my own. I am not paid to review this pattern. I bought it for my own use.
A word about attaching the sleeves to the top. The direction does not tell you to sew easing stitches before attaching to the bodice. You really need to sew those easing stitches or it won't fit right. I also sewed two rows of gathering stitches to the bottom of the sleeve while the seams were open. This makes life easier then trying to sew around a small tube.
All together, I was quite happy with the pattern. I do wish that there were more illustrations. It would really help a newbie with garmentmaking. Now off to make one for my daughter.
