Asymmetry Repeated

Standard

Another take on the Vogue 8737, the asymmetric top.  I really like how the words and phrases wrap around hither and yon.  Thankfully I won’t be the one trying to read any of them!

Once again, I used some of the good stuff, a beefy rayon knit acquired from a local quilt shop, of all places.  They have a small selection of garment fabric, but it is high quality, and I am thankful for that.

I think this fabric has been aging in the stash for well over a year.

Not much to be said about the sewing.  All the seams were sewn on the serger, then I used the coverstitch to hem everything and tack the facing down.  I still haven’t decided if I want to try this style with a neckline binding.  For now, the facing works fine.

The fabric, however, I really, really, really like.  I have saved all the leftovers, and hope to squeak out one more top – probably short sleeved or sleeveless.
