A friend very generously friend gifted me this beautiful liberty fabric. I planned on making the same pattern as the gingham top that I made recently, however after a few goes trying to get the gathers even I cheated & added front & back pleats.
This top has been an excellent lesson in fabric selection & the fact that sewing the same pattern in two different fabrics will result in very different finished garments. The liberty fabric has a beautiful drape to it, but this also means that the pattern needs some alterations to make it work for me.
Basically I need to unpick & start again, which of course I am putting off. I may need to tidy up my sewing room to find my unpicker first.
