Happy Tuesday. Today’s DIY is this sleeveless top with a ruffle detail using Simplicity pattern 8512. While I was going on my JoAnn fabric 99 cents pattern splurge, I came across this pattern and instantly knew I had to make this top. There’re various style options for this top, so of course I chose variation “D” because I like ALL THINGS UNIQUE AND FLY…… YEP :-). I chose this light weight sheer polyester fabric because it just seemed more functional for this style of top. I wanted the ruffle detail of this top to be light in weight and flowy. Overall I found this top easy and quick to whip up, HOWEVER when attaching the ruffle detail, just make sure its properly centered, because when I finally tried my top on, I noticed that it wasn’t proportioned, which made me have to slightly twist the top to make the back zipper centered along with the ruffle being centered, but then that caused the front of the top to be twisted on one side in the front…WHEW that was a lot. POINT….please don’t make the same mistake I originally made, by making sure the ruffle is precisely centered when being attached. I hope this post will be helpful to a fellow seamstress.
Be Blessed. I hope you like this look and enjoyed the post.
