New Look 6868 - A Cute Top!


I made this last night! It was already cut out, but I was able to finish all the sewing. The fabric
is a lightweight cotton gauze print with gold thread throughout. Purchased last year from one of the Joann's sales.
View D is the one I chose. All of the tops are loose-fitting and have front pleats around the neck line and a neckband. This one has ties that are sewn, one each on the inside and outside of the front center. After everything is complete, you can either just flip out the tie from the inside or you may tie it. Also, this view has 3/4 length sleeves. I plan to make it again in the sleeveless version.

Here is a closeup of the neckline and the ties.

My husband and I went to see Star Trek earlier this evening. It was so good!

Wow, your closet is going to be bursting at the seams with all these new tops. I love the pink fabric. I like the tie a lot, too. The sleeveless version will be nice, too.

Now that's cute! I've been thinking about that pattern, but hadn't made a decision about it yet. It's so nice to have LOTS of tops, I feel I can dress in a flash when I do. Thanks for your comment about my new jacket!

That is a great top! I LOVE that fabric--so bright, cheerful, and "show-ey". Oh my gosh! Wasn't Star Trek a GREAT movie?!?! I thought the casting was spot on. The nuances of the original characters were brilliantly captured. The only thing I didn't remember from the original series (and maybe this is new) is the "relationship" between Spock and Uhura.
