I’m in BRAZIL!!! If you remember, way be here, I was planning to sew for my “summer” in Brazil. Here’s my first travel top.
I was so busy sewing, I didn’t blog, but now I’m catching my clothes in action. For this top, I cut the shoulders size 18 and graded out to 20 at the waist and smoothed it out to the hem so its half way between 20/22 at the hem. I then used the Threads FBA adjustment for knits to go up from a B to a C. I didn’t need the full bicep adjustment for this one. I shortened the back-waist length by 1″.
Based on the back photo, I probably could narrow the upper back a little and maybe add some “junk in the truck” room. As you can see, I used the denim-esque 4-way stretch remnant for the body and collar, and used the remaining navy jersey from this version of StyleArc’s Laura cardigan for the sleeves.
