Archived Project: Across the Ditch Top

Jul 12, 2011


This is Blusa 158 from Manequim 620 (February 2011). It’s a fairly simple top with a really nice pleat detail in the top corner. The seaming on this top is really nice with the front pattern piece running over the shoulders to connect with the back at the shoulder blade.

This is called the “Across the Ditch Top” because it took me forever, starting in in Perth, Australia and getting finished (finally!) In Wellington, New Zealand.

It’s a Manequim size 44 and I think it’s a little big for me in the shoulder and across the bust but if I take it in anymore I’ll need to add an invisible zipper so I’ll see how I feel about it after a few more wears.

I am wearing it with my Jenny skirt.

Material Notes
