From afar, it seems really innocent. I know I could just go back and remedy all the minor things, but I'm just not feeling it for some reason. One of these days, I'll go back and make this pattern again, but for this particular top... a wadder.
Fabric: Navy poly chiffon from a fabric swap so it was free!
There is nothing particularly wrong with this pattern (other than the difficult to decipher Burda instructions, but that's with all their magazine patterns). Actually, I love this pattern and this particular issue is one of my favorites! So what's the problem? Well when I list them out, they're all really minor...
- I wasn't paying attention (I had pretty much already given up on this top anyway...) and I attached the facing incorrectly in the front. There's supposed to be a keyhole in the front, but stitched it all the way up. My head barely fits through the neckline.
- This was the first time I've tried a rolled hem on my serger. I did practice and it's not too bad but it doesn't help how I feel about this top.
- There's a "tape stain" on the front.
- The facing keeps flipping out even though it's understitched.
