from Vogue 8669; I had a gift card from Hancock's, a dress-up party to attend, and about an hour...in 15 minute increments over about 4 days...to sew up something to sparkle.
Found a very interesting lame-knit; it appears to be silver lame' printed on navy blue knit. I saw it and immediately thought of a cowl-neck shell top.
So I brought it home, pulled out the above-mentioned pattern and, per my last iteration, copied the front pattern piece and proceeded to whack and spread and pivot my way to a full bust adjustment. It was kinda needed on the earlier tops, but this knit did not have as much stretch as the earlier ones so I knew it would be necessary on this.
I loved the flow and sparkle of the fabric until...some point in the process I looked at it puddled up on the sewing table and saw...a pan of Jiffy -pop popcorn...
My elegant sparkly top became a kitschy wear-with-tongue-in-cheek kinda garment.
I wore it anyway.
And will probably wear it again.
'Cause it is kinda fun...
