When inspired by something, anything...I have a hard time thinking of anything else.
When I first saw the Cabi RompTop, I spent hours searching the internet for "paper finish chambray" and finally had to settle for washed and re-washed and washed again chambray, without a paper finish. I found my chambray at Joann's. But I'm still looking for what would be considered a paper finish! The pattern? Simplicity 2892. View A, without sleeves.
And I made yet another one, from some stash fabric...a semi-sheer linen blend print.
I did without the facings, scooped out the neck a bit, and sewed a bias binding facing instead.
And my usual FBA.
The method I use so I don't have to add a dart is a simple slash method, illustrated here.
It's a cute basic top. I would suggest you try it! It might be just the thing you need to get you out of your sewing slump.
