Summer singlet tops

IMG_3043 IMG_3052

I made these tops using a self drafted pattern, they are longer at the back. I scaled it down for Little Madam and the Munchkin but not quite enough for the Munchkin’s so I put a little pleat in the front before I attached the binding.

For the girls:
I made the binding from the same fabric – I love how great self binding looks . There are a few variations on how to make binding, this is a great one. I used one of these great little tools to press the raw edges over, then folded it in half and pressed again. I enclosed the raw edge inside the binding, then pinned and top stitched it in place.

For mine:
I made some binding from some left over silk habutai. I just folded it in half and pressed it, then attached the raw edges of garment and binding.  I turned and pressed it to the inside, enclosing the raw edges then pinned and top stitched it in place.
