New Look 6808 (TNT) and The 2013 Essential Tops Sew-Along


This is the same pattern I used last year when I participanted in Faye's  Tops Sew Along. Last  year I made one blouse. However it was Faye who inspired me to stick with the pattern and workout the fitting issues. It was a slow process and along the way I receive lots of encouragement from Sheila and others. Below is the result. I am happpy with the results of my efforts and my productivity doubled since last year. .


P.S. I did not plan the outfit. I made the skirt during another one of Faye's great ideas " Skirt Palooza" last October. I choose the fabrics and after completing the blouses I realize that it was a perfect fit with the skirt.
My photographer took the pics with my I-Pad. It came out blurry because I have a plastic film over the screen which hubby did not bother to remove.
The pattern alteration was somewhat extensive and time consuming for me. I will write about it in another post. This is a TNT pattern for me, and yes Faye Tops Sew Along is over today, but for me I am just getting started, more blouses to come with bettern photos.
