Alterations: 1/2" Forward Shoulder and Sloped Shoulder Adjustment
I love this top! It is so quick and easy to make! In fact, all sewing was accomplished on my sewing machine alone--stretch stitch, zig zag stitch, and straight stitch.
I am desperately in need of summer tops and I will be filling up my closet with several of these.
The cropped, tank-like facing is genius. Here you can see that it nicely covers your undergarments.
I did make make a muslin in some inexpensive knit to test fit. I determined that my shoulder seam sat too far back and needed to be adjusted to come forward. I went ahead and sloped my shoulder seam by 1/4" since I have had to do that on some tops. Maybe it wasn't necessary, but I had plenty of depth to play with, so I figured it wouldn't hurt.
My fabric is a jersey knit purchased from Joann Fabrics. Lately they have had some very pretty knits.
My shorts are made from Jalie 2908 jeans pattern.
