It’s gonna be May soon, the sun will shine more and more as the summer is coming: welcome at the blogtour hosted by Petite Stitchery! Make sure to enter the awesome giveaway at the end!
As the sun starts to shine more and more, I made the Bliss Cold Shoulder Top. This was my first pattern by Petite Stitchery, and I asked myself several times: why didn’t I took the plunge before? I love this pattern!
The cold shoulder breaths summer and the bow that ruffles the sleeves creates a playfull extra dimension. And I think it looks (and most definitely feels) very feminine.
The pattern comes with all kinds of different options: 3 sleevelengths, top or tunic length, hemmed or banded at the bottom. I obviously chose for short sleeves, with the banded top option. I took a fabric that is a combination of velvet and seetrue material. It is a challenge to sew this kind of fabric, since it is very slippery and curly. The best tip ever for sewing this: use lots and lots of clips! They hold the fabric together, and then serge slowly.
I was surprised that it was such a fast sew, loved that too. The pattern is well drafted and comes with great instructions. I am very pleased with the Bliss Cold Shoulder Top, and I think you might be aswell! Making my wishlist of Petite Stitchery Patterns I want to sew next as we speak!
And last but not least the core question of my sewing experience: what do you think was the greatest challenge, sewing this slippery and curly fabric or…. standing on high heels at this rocks?!
