Hummingbird peplum top # 2
Cake Patterns Hummingbird top. Size 40 with the following modifications: a forward shoulder adjustment of 18mm. An extra 3-10mm on the sides (more on the front than the back). A 1cm wedge out of the back. The neckline is a bit wider than the green version, and the depth of the front neckline is in between the blue and green versions. I dropped the arm curve about 2cm.
In another version (which I may well do), I would slice a tiny curve off the top of the shoulder. I wouldn't mind trying the dicky version. This gorgeous version from Leila of Three Dresses has convinced me that it's worth a try. I bought some pale blue fabric, for reasons that I wasn't even sure of at the time, except that I was on a speed buying mission, and it didn't feel right to leave without some blue fabric. For the dickey insert, I'm thinking of repurposing a striped blue shirt which Favourite Handyman has declared uncomfortable and unwearable. Maybe stripe matching would be too hard, on closer inspection. We'll see.
Tomorrow, a new circle skirt. From beginning to end in a day?
