Simplicity 2603

contest 101

Here’s my topper item for the Wardrobe contest.

The fabric is some sort of jersey from, of course.  This goes together very easily.  What I need to decide, is whether or not I’m happy with this hem.  This is a 3-thread stretch stitch done on my serger with wooly nylon in one looper.  I thought I had the differential feed adjusted properly, but I should have done some more adjusting.  I just finished the edge with no seam allowance turned under.  When worn down and open like this, the edges are wavy.  Does this bother me? Should it matter?  I don’t know.  When I wrap it around like so,

I think if I had enough fabric, I would add a binding edge all the way around, but I used every BIT of fabric for this.  I made up a medium, which when you include the tank top, calls for 4 yards!  Another possibility would be to cut off the serged edge and just leave the edges raw.  I just need to decide what to do.

Here’s the tank top:

Very cute!

I had to add a center back seam, due to my fabric shortage, so I probably won’t wear this without something over it.

back view, again with the wavy hem (apparently, this is going to bother me since I keep mentioning it…)

This is my favorite way to wear this, both sides draped over the opposite shoulder.

This is a great pattern, and I plan on making it again in a stretch lace, that is if I have enough of it!
