The Striped Top - Part Three
Finishing the top was pretty easy and quick. I did baste and check the position of the waist twist before serging everything together. That may seem like a such a simple thing and really it is, but it can save you a lot of headache and trouble by being able to do a quick check before making those seams permanent. When you're combining patterns or working with some self-drafted pieces, a little basting can go a long way in helping to figure out if what you made is what you intended to make!
I'm happy with it, and it was certainly less expensive than the original top! Since it is short-sleeved, it will have to wait until spring, but it will be nice to have something "new" waiting to wear.
Parting Shot: Can't See Out. Between the snowstorms and the snowblowing, the snow in the front yard is so high we can't see out one of our lower level windows. Normally, we can see the street and the driveway easily, but not now.
