30/30 Sewing Challenge Week 1- Share What You've Done

 30/30 Sew For Me Challenge

Sarah from Berry Barn Designs as put up this 3o minutes a day for 30 days challenge!  Here is what I've done!

Berry Barn Designs



 

For this weeks challenge I chose my fabric, 
which most of you saw.  It's a  red/black 
checkered cotton fabric.  I decided I was going to make
 the black top  (view A) on the 
pattern envelope of New Look 6079.









I then pulled out all the cut pattern pieces out from the envelope and gave them a quick pressing to remove any winkles.
Pinned the pattern pieces to the fabric and cut them out (no photo available).  I forgot!








Next I sewed the darts on the front and back.
       Sewed the shoulders and side seams.  
                                       Then I checked the fit.





I placed some interfacing to the collar piece 
and along the front where I will be 
placing buttons to give it body, shape, 
and support!






I then pinned the sleeves to the garment and sewed them on







Made the button holes and attached the buttons.  
Sewed the hems on the sleeves and edge.
Here's my completed garment!  



I was so amazed that in 7 days I was able to finish a cute top by sewing for 30 minutes.  I am so happy!  I can't wait for my next project!

Your new top looks great! I really like the buttons you chose, they go well with the fabric, but don't just disappear into it.

Looks fantastic! The idea of sewing clothing is so intimidating to me, but you made it sound a bit easy :D
