I had a really productive weekend for Self Stitched September – made some shorts AND a top! HOWEVER…look at the project picture of the Spring Ruffle Top here:
And see my Spring (non) Ruffle Top below:
So, would you
A) Sew the pleating all the way down the back to try to take up some of the excess?
B) Take it a part completely and re-cut a less voluminous back piece?
I tried on a belt I had in my closet and that won’t work.
I’m open to any ideas to save this shirt! I’m okay with it being loose – that’s the intended style, but as it stands, it’s too much.
