Tester Top

I made my first top yesterday. It is not the most amazing thing I've ever made, and I am okay with that because it is the first time I have made this top, or any top. Whenever I make something for the first time I always try it with cheap fabric, then if I like it I go and buy nicer fabric. Which is actually not the best idea because cheap fabric sews like cheap fabric ha ha so, if I sew with nicer fabric then the first time I make something it will turn out better! But I just don't want to risk it so I will continue with my way, cheap fabric first then nice fabric! So there it is, my first shot at a top, I embellished it with some little frillies I learned how to make to spice it up a bit, but mainly to distract from the horrible hem. I blame the fabric.
