Those of you not on Instagram
may have missed out on seeing this latest creation made by Georgia, so here it is again in full detail.
love this top! It's a beautiful combination of silk crepe de chine in ivory and camel with a touch of French lace added to the bodice. The pattern used was Vogue 9067
, view A. Some slight changes were made to the pattern which were to adjust the original armholes, bringing in the armhole line and cut away slightly more at the shoulders with exposed self bias binding finish added to the neckline and armholes.
The original pattern has the top bodice cut in two pieces with a centre front seam. For her version, Georgia wanted to use a small remnant of French lace she picked up at our Surry Hills store. She eliminated the centre front seam to cut the top bodice (in ivory silk) on the fold and then used the original pattern to cut out the lace part, lining up the pretty scalloped edge up with the CF seam line on the pattern. She overlapped the lace over the ivory bodice piece, lining up the scalloped edge down centre front and stitching it in place, as well as basting the two pieces together at the side seam, shoulder and neckline/armhole edge.
The other minor change was to add contrast black Mokuba grosgrain ribbon to secure the back opening in a lovely tie.
The possibilities for this pattern are endless and it also looks fantastic in this colour blocked version Vogue has shown below (although plainer pants would be my option as this top is the star!).
