I finally finished my top for the Pantone Color Contest at PatternReview.com. I'm really cutting this close. It's the 23nd and I only have until the 30th to finish my skirt and write 3 reviews. Wow, do you think I'll make it? I hope so.
So here is my new top.
I'm happy with how it turned out. I did have some issues with making it. Mostly that I chose a poor fabric for the pattern. This thin shirting really doesn't have what it takes to hold the shape of this pattern. Oh well. It will get a lot of wear. Now I know for next time to use a heavier fabric.
The thing that I like the most about this pattern, NewLook 6130, is the sleeve treatment. That seems so silly because I wasn't originally planning on following the directions for that. As it turns out, I learned something new and love the technique. I think this will be something that I use a lot in the future.
