Izzy top FLOP (Heavily modified, not a problem with the pattern)
SEW-Floral Izzy Top

The shorts are a straight forward sew. Modified the waistband into a two piece waistband. Added a bow to identify the front instead of a tag in the back. Did lot of topstitching with regular thread and zigzagged all the seams, so took a bit more time than expected but love the clean insides.

The top is a flop. No mistake of the pattern, i used it before and loved it. This time i heavily modified it by straightening the bodice, removing the back opening and enlarging the neckline… the result i cannot pull J’s second hand through… so cut the back to put a placket in place, tried again… it didn’t fit. By now i understood the problem, its the straightened bodice…. No way i can save the top and all my brainstorming went down the drain. Lesson learnt (whatever the lesson maybe :-)).

All in all I have only a pair of shorts to show after 1 week of sewing 😦

I am waiting for the next KCW maybe i will plan better.
