I have a bit of a thing for bias binding at the moment (I blame this vintage pattern for setting me off). Yes, this is another top based on the Butterick 8477… but sadly it just doesn’t excite me as much as the last one. Thinking about it now, I probably erred a little with the choice of fabric for the binding – perhaps it needed something brighter? I am pleased with the way the cut-outs turned out though (I took a few photos as I went along, so let me know if you’d like to see a tutorial).
And I really like how the back looks:
I think I’ll have to treat it as a toile, and try again with other fabrics. However, I may still have to wear this one, because I’m signing up for Me-Made-June!
‘I, Amy of Diana & Me, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-June ’11. I endeavour to wear one handmade or refashioned item each day for the duration of June 2011’
Just hoping I can get enough sewing done during May to keep me decently dressed! Is anyone else joining in too?
