My fabric is this beautiful Black Peachskin Polyester from Mood Fabrics.com. I like tops that look good, but are low maintenance. And this fabric goes from the washer, dryer to wearing with the greatest of ease. I never allow clothes to linger in the dryer and always take clothes out and put them on hangers while they're hot and I rarely have to iron. Because who wants to iron outside of actually sewing?
I like this top because it's an easy pullover, but it still has the cuffs like a traditional button front shirt.
I love the look of the high collar with the keyhole opening. But I plan to wear this into the spring, so I used the view with the neck bias binding and the hook and eye. And even though I added the hook and eye, I doubt I’ll ever actually close it because I love the deep v.
I shaved the cuffs down by 1.5 inches, because they were swimming around my wrist.
The alteration made them fitted and that's the way I like to wear my sleeve cuffs.
When I lengthened the bodice, I lowered the waist also.
So, I moved the casing and the elastic down one inch.
This was an excellent top to add to my wardrobe and end the year on!
