Just like version #1, this top doesn't need much fitting, which makes it a super easy, instant gratification kind of project.
It's really interesting how different sewing tools can make certain tasks easier... or not. As I mentioned, I started off using my narrow hem foot to finish the hem and sleeves. On paper this seemed like a good idea, but the fabric (maybe because of how slithery charmeuse can be?) did not cooperate. It refused to curl into a neat little hem. So, in the end, I pressed a double fold and then just stitched it with a regular foot. It looks good. On the flip side, I finished the seams and the inside edge of the cowl with my new serger. And that went swimmingly! I feel like the insides look so very neat and professional.
Anyway, I'm not sure I'll make this pattern again, since I now have two versions of this top. But I do highly recommend it.
Happy sewing everyone!
