Bye bye birdie

The Venue top from la Maison Victor in the Bye bye birdie fabric from Atelier Brunette.

Sewing clothes for myself already taught me a lot about my personal style.

This project confirmed my theory about wide clothes around the waist. I loved the pictures in the magazine, but I didn’t like it on me. It turned out far too wide at the waist. I had to alter the pattern quite a bit to make it acceptable.

Apart from the disappointing result, the blind buttonholes and sleeve pull-on were fun to make.
