With Taylor gone at a sleepover and Bret out fishing, I started work on Simplicity 4163 – That’s So Raven choice of tops. There were 6 styles to chose from, but Taylor didn’t have any difficulty selecting one she liked the best, view F. This particular style is a halter top with a front drape (under the bust) and mock ties.
I had already cut this out quite some time ago, but it’s just been sitting in a pile while I worked on other projects. I only managed to get the front constructed – lining the top, finishing the seams of the drape and ties, and adding them to the halter. I’m glad that I have a rolled hem foot, it is a time saver when doing narrow hems! The rest of this top should go together rather fast, I just need to add a casing and elastic to the back, attach the sides and finish the bottom hem. Let’s just hope Taylor likes it when it’s finished! My hope is that I’ll have it completed by Taylor’s birthday party on Saturday.
Tomorrow, I’ll be traveling out of town for the day. I’m going bridal dress shopping with my friend. I’m contemplating taking a camera (camera phones just don’t take the best quality photos) and posting some of the dresses she tries on (and any bridesmaid’s dresses) for some inspiration!
