I had a chance to stop at SR Harris when we were in Minnesota a few weeks ago. In preparation I created a list of patterns I wanted to sew, along with the fabric needed for each. This foil print knit was not even CLOSE to anything I was looking for! But I swear as I walked past it, the bolt JUMPED into my cart! And I'm glad I did. I think the foil knit looks lovely made into this pullover top.
I knew I would need a full bust adjustment (FBA) no matter what knit I used. I began by adding 3" to the bustline using the pivot and slide method. I basted the front and back together to check the fit. There was enough room but it was tighter than I like and I knew if I left it that way I'd never wear the top. So I added a little more width which required a small side dart. I'm much happier with the way it feels.
By the way, I put a video on YouTube with my fabric purchases from SR Harris if you're curious what I found on my last trip. (Here's the link: https://youtu.be/yuxAMBSI-LI)
Until next time - Blessings! Pin It
