Ah, yes, and it's a remnant. I haven't told you that there was just a metre of it, 150cm wide mind you so that was great.
The fabric is lying square and flat in the photo, there are no straight lines in this either. So now you realise the challenge! I used a really simple pattern for a cap sleeved top, View A Burda 7079.
I found it difficult getting the pattern placement right and the front and back are great but I did have to sacrifice the pattern not matching by about 1-1.5" but hey ho, you win some, you lose some! I'm still really pleased with how the top turned out and I've already worn it and washed it.
Here are photos of the front and back views not that there's much difference between them, really but at least you can see the pattern placement!
Just in case you're wondering, the photo on the left is the front view.
What I have decided to do in the future is to cut the back on the fold as it's easy to get in and out of the top without the bother of having a back opening. I hate sewing button sloops and don't make a good job of them. This is no exception! I just love this top and I can see me wearing it lots. Anyone got a good deal recently or been really pleased with how something has turned out? On another subject, I finished my first Vintage Pattern Pledge yesterday so keep in touch, I'll be blogging about that really soon!
