FO: Agnes top (G&G workshop)


Finished this top as part of a one-day workshop at Guthrie & Ghani in Birmingham. Didn't sew the material to the sewing machine once, unlike my first experience sewing with jersey.

We graded the neckline (size 1) to the shoulders (size 5) then out to size 7 for my hips. It's quite figure-hugging!

If I make this top again, I'll probably do the following:

  • Drop the neckline a bit ( I prefer them a bit lower)
  • Increase the bust gathers
  • Make the sleeves 3/4 length
Got enough of the material (from Girl Charlee) to make a matching skirt, I think! Off to Lutterloh to have a look! Bought a twin stretch needle because I love the look of the simple turned-up hems. 

Current mood: enthralled
