Draped Top - Paco Peralta
Pattern and Cutting Notes
I've got the top all cut out and while I was cutting noted a few things about the pattern.
First, the back is not on a center fold. A seam will allow for an optional zipper, and a shaped seam fits the curve of the back better than a straight one.
Two, the shoulders are also curved, to better fit the shoulder than a straight seam.
For this version in lace, I've opted to cut the hem right along the scalloped edge of the lace. To do that, I've folded up the pattern along the indicated hemline and then placed the pattern along the scallops. I took care to center the back so that when the center back seam is sewn, it will make a continuous scallop all along the back.
You can see the scalloped hem better from this side:
I should be able to work on this tomorrow and finish it up this weekend. I'm hoping to post the steps, because there is a slightly different but logical construction order.
Parting Shot: Muddy. Today's hike was one of those with a combination of mud, ice and snow. There was snow at the summits, but at lower elevations there was mud.
