It was also the first time in ages that I've set sleeves into anything. I must admit I was feeling somewhat nervous about it (hence the endless amount of sleeveless dresses dear readers) but even the sleeves turned out smoothly and I didn't have take out the ripper. I'll be trying out more patterns with sleeves in the future!
Pinning the sleeve
I originally planned to make this with a contrasting collar, but this being 'the wearable mock-up' I didn't bother. Luckily I had some leftover black and white dotty cotton (that some might recognise from previous projects!) so I decided to make the bow contrasting to give it a little something.
The less confusing collar
The finished product
The top was easy enough to make and with slight adjustments to the lenght I'm sure it'll be fab. I think it has a certain vintagey feel to it and it looks cute with a skirt. I'm already planning on making this again with a contrasing collar and I might try one of the other views too! Over and out for now dear readers!
