Persistence Usually Pays Off

Love this top! It's Vogue 7756 which is so old I can't remember when I bought it but I do remember the only time I made it was for a woman I use to sew for in the early 90's, she was the best client ever. She was very petite and just happy to have clothes that fit, never balked at a price, never had a problem when I ran late, if they all were like her I probably would still sew for people but trust me when I say she was the exception and not the rule.

Now my only dilemma is to tuck or not to tuck. When I initially purchased this fabric it was to go with this pair of high-waist pants I made, they're Butterick 5250, (I know this because it's so easy to find my patterns now, yea)

As I said I purchased this pattern for my petite client and it was size 6-10, I'm a little bigger than a 10 so I just cut it a little bigger and added about 2 inches to the length, which I'm very glad I did so that I have the option of wearing it either way. The problem I have with wearing it untucked is the back view.

But until I can stop eating a bowl of ice cream every night I think I'm going to stick with it untucked lol.

I didn't think about it until I finished this but the light green satin top would go well with these pants too.
Tomorrow's Friday and I don't think I have any distractions this weekend so hopefully that means a lot of time to sew.
