Looks really nice!!!! Did you make your paper tape dressform, too?
Thanks Barbara! Yes, I made her from duct tape about 8 years ago and she is beginning to become unglued. It is time to make another one!
Scheri Manson asked:
Wow. Its great. Love your fabric choice.
I really bombed with this pattern and my fabric. But I have since found a more flattering pattern and will be back to Barbaras class to make up in the new year. Love to see that great top with a yummy dark chocolate pencil skirt.
Thanks Scheri. That pencil skirt is a great idea. I have some dark brown mole skin fabric in my stash that I think I will make up. I discovered I liked this top much better when I used a fabric that has a more fluid nature such as a soft rayon or matte jersey so that the peplum doesn't stick out at the hips but falls in soft folds, so you might try that.
Eva testar asked:
I think its look great. Is that pattern included in the class?
Thanks Eva! Yes, they send you this pattern to go with the class. This class is great and I highly recommend taking it. I've learned so much from Barbara.
I would need to have a higher neckline with a collar and 3/4 length sleeves. would this be possible? I suppose I would never wear this stle as it is.
Yes, anything is possible--as Barbara shows at the end of the class how to make different garments from this pattern. If I were you I would find another Vogue pattern that has the neckline and collar you want and then just trace it onto tthis pattern. Same with the sleeves.
