Jalie Sweetheart Top

Yes, I finally got back in my sewing room.  I always get the sewing blues in winter, but dieting has compounded that.  I don’t want to spend a lot of time of something that won’t fit for long.  However, I’ve gotten to the point where none of my fitted garments fit any more.  I plan to sew some basics out of my stash to get me to my next size.

So, here is the first of such projects: the sweetheart top from Jalie.  I tried going down 1 size from my previous muslin of this top, but I think it needs more tweaks.  I would prefer a shorter hem and a trimmer waist.  While I really like the design, I’m glad I didn’t cut out several at once.  After trimming the waist and hem, it will be ready for assembly line sewing.  Sorry for the phone picture.  My New Year’s resolution is to get a tripod for my regular camera.
