Leila


Hi!
 
As promised, the first one of a number of makes. I finally got around to taking some pictures with the help of my fantastic sister - hopefully, I'll get to take more this week.
 
 
This top is a very simple pattern, but I really like it. It is the Leila top from La Maison Victor (from the May-June 2015 issue). The only thing I would adjust next time is to make it a bit wider at the hem, so it falls smoothly over my hips. But other than that, I'm happy with the fit, I didn't even need to do a full bust adjustment. I might be making more of these in the future! The only difference in my version of the pattern are the straps. I made double straps and let the middle ones come together at the back.
 

I bought the fabric at Stoffenspektakel, but I don't remember which merchant I bought it from... I think it is a polyester fabric, but it feels nice to the skin and it doesn't wrinkle much, so that is a huge plus! I've already worn it a couple of times and it is on its way to becoming a staple item. I might actually need to make more, haha.
