This is another sleeveless top I can wear under jackets for work. Probably a little late in the season (as the weather has turned), but a good way to use up remnant bargains.
Lightweight rayon print – Oriental Garden. 90cm scrap grabbed from the remnant bin for $6 (less than half price). However it had been badly cut and only about 75cm of the length was useable.
I had originally intended to include short sleeves as per New Look 6808 – but the fabric length was about 5cm too short to include them.
Facings have been cut from a knit fusible interfacing – partly because there was no rayon left, and partly to test out some ideas from the internet.
Using the New Look 6483 View D neckline and facings plus the New Look 6808 body I already adapted.
Back and front waist darts have been moved to the centre back or side seams.
- Completely enclosed all in one armhole/neckline facing (see video tutorial link below)
- Using fusible knit interfacing as the facing material, then fuse. I got this idea from a sewing blog, and will link when I rediscover the post.
Very happy with the new techniques – I will use both of them again.
- Remove 2cm length from front and back necklines (done)
- Take in 0.5 cm depth from the front arm hole (done)
