|Finished! (Unless I decide to add some cuffs to the sleeves.)|
So one dress form later, this is my Late Spring Top! I wonder if Rae over at Made by Rae will send me a prize anyway. Ha!
I've never draped before so I'm almost clueless. The draping book by Helen Joseph-Armstrong is sitting on my bookshelf and I've looked over it. A lot. But as I was actually working on this top I didn't open the book. I'm sure it would have turned out better if I had. Oh well. I'll open it next time I do some draping.
I really liked using a dress form. I had never used one before so this was all new to me. I know I don't have it adjusted perfectly yet. I think I need to feed the Red Mamma a few cheeseburgers so she looks more like me.
And a special thanks to the little man for "helping" me measure everything twice. That boy loves to spin the Red Mamma around and around. And he loves wrapping the tape measure around and around everything. More than twice.
