New Look 6150

I thought I had posted about this top here but I think not.  I made New Look 6150 .
I used fabric that has been in my stash for over 4 years.  This was one of the final fabric purchases I made from Textile Studios before they closed up shop.  This is a lovely mesh knit fabric with flowers.  It was very nice to sew with, much better than I thought it would be.  Now I wish I had more of it.

I was drawn to NL6150 when I first saw it on website.  Reading several reviews at Pattern Review helped me deal with some fitting issues others had.  Some adjustments I made were forward shoulder, and sway back.  I reduced the length by 1.5 inches as I am short and many indicated that the pattern ran long.  I find that NL patterns are always rather long on me as they are drafted for someone much taller.

Here are a few photos of the top when I wore it to work recently.

I used 1.5 yards of fabric for this top.

It is lovely - and the cross over fits nicely. Good idea to shorten it - it looks long on the pattern picture, so it would have swamped you.

Your stuff is always so classy. Great job!

Nice top, and the whole outfit is wonderful. I love jersey tops as they can be dressed down with jeans and also used for work.
