Anyway let me share it with you:
I made it on Saturday June 1 2013.
The fabric used is cotton (we call it dacron and cotton) :
I got the two pieces of fabric (show below) from a seamstress who obviously decided to abandon the project.
I decided to make a size 3T top.
My measurements used were :
my aim is my top to have a finished length (including straps) of 15 1/2 inches
The fabric is actually a top gone bad. Its size is about 12 inches long starting from the cut neckline on the orange piece and about 12 inches wide) .
So, the first thing I did was even up my squares. I ended up with 12 x 12 squares
Then, I sewed the orange pieces together and then stitched the white to the bottom.
I then stitched a one inch tube at the top of the blouse to fit in the elastic. remember to leave out a gap to insert the elastic through.
3 -4 inches when stitched on.
Sew the other side of the top together . You should now have this (front view)
Cut the elastic one inch shorter than the chest measurement (i.e 20 inches) and insert elastic through the tube . Stitch the ends together and close your casing .
And that's it!
I don't have any children to fit it on to give you a better idea but I hope you have a little one to make one for and let me see how it looks.
