Hey y’all! Back again! And we’re keeping the scrap busting train moving!
So, the third garment in my series is the Calvin wrap top pattern by True Bias. I had the opportunity to test the pattern over the Summer and fell in love with how easy, and little amount of fabric I had to use to make my project. It was a no brainer to include this in my series!
I’m wearing the muslin I made for the pattern. I loved the color and how it came out, that I didn’t see the need in recreating the wheel, right?
The fabric I used is….well, it was passed down to me so I actually don’t have any idea what it is. But if I had to guess, it feels a lot like crepe de chine. It’s a nice burnt orange color, that has a slight crinkle texture to it. I had about a yard and a half and it was 45 inches. I literally had just the right amount for the top.
Not going to lie, the crimp texture made it a little hard to sew the bias tape, but not impossible. I just had to take my time, ya know?
This is a very quick sew, with easy to read directions and honestly…the hacking ideas are already calling my name. Contrasting bias tape, anyone?
