spinnersformeme Feeling a bit like Goldilocks - this is the second #dakotatop I've made from the pattern by Shwin Designs, first one was too big, this one a tad tight, hoping for third time lucky!
Pattern : the Dakota Top by Shwin Designs
Fabric : rayon cream birds from @spotlightstores and beautifully soft bamboo knit from @rathdownefabrics
Pattern Review
This is the second Dakota top I've made, both have been a bit rushed so I've omitted the front placket, but I love being able to quickly whip up a smart casual top blending knits & wovens together. The pattern is clear & easy to follow - it assumes a little basic knowledge (eg about seam finishing options) but gives some great tips for working with knits and includes an excellent tutorial for doing a full bust adjustment. My sizing issues have definitely been user error, but I would suggest making a trial version before cutting into any beloved fabric to ensure you're happy with the fit. Recommend for a confident beginner.

spinnersformeme Tonight's sewing - finally some #selfishsewing for me! Thought it was appropriate to pair it with this print by Tasmanian artist Madeleine Goodwolf titled "watering the soul" because that's what sewing does for me #happy #newthreads #gladyoucantseethedust #sewmystash2016 4mon
  •   smalltimevintage Good on you! I never get to sew for me. I'm still assembling the pattern for a dress for myself and I started back in November... 😬 4mon
  •   spinnersformeme Yes the struggle is real @little_horrors_shop Last thing I sewed for me was a last minute dress for a wedding in October! But very satisfying, will keep an eye out for a post of your dress now... 4mon
