Vogue 1020, or “I’ll Never Make This Top Again”

You’d think by now I’d know what looks good/doesn’t look good on my body.

So why in the world did I think that a top with gathers spanning across my midsection would be attractive?

I cut a size 12 in the hopes that maybe it wouldn’t be so snug and tight. Well, it wasn’t in the bust but it was certainly pushing the envelope when it came to my tummy and hips.

There’s a reason it’s pictured on Ethel and not on me. Ouch. Frankly, it doesn’t look half bad on her!

I was going to try letting out the seams a bit around the waist area and taking it in more in the bust, but when I tried it on and looked in the mirror, I knew I’d never be completely satisfied with how it would look and it would probably end up in the back of my closet, never to see the light of day.

Frankly, my heart wasn’t into it and I guess I knew deep down from the beginning that it wouldn’t work out. My stitching kinda sucked around the neckline. Plus, I couldn’t do a neckband since I ran out fabric to make one. Double suckage.

Well, moving on then….
