Clare’s top, part 3: second fitting

Confesssion: this happened WEEKS ago. Despite having been on vacation for a month and a half I seem to be really short of time! But I’d still love to post a few photos of this second toile as we’ve made a few crucial tweaks…

The fundamentals of the style are still the same, but we’ve slimmed down the racer back and straps even more to make a really striking silhouette. We’ve also taken the decision to crop the length so it doesn’t need to be tucked in, not to give a midriff-flash but to eliminate any unflattering bulkiness from tucking into the waistband.

So now I’ll update the pattern and go ahead and make our final version. I also need to take volume and length from Clare’s bought skirt and add a lining. I’ll see her in a couple of weeks for our final fit 🙂
