I've made some progress on my top, having sewed together the main pieces of the garment. One thing I've realized with this project: see-through, gauzy fabrics are difficult to work with when you are a novice! After getting this far I realized I needed a sewing handbook, and went out a bought "Teach Yourself Sewing Visually" and it has been extremely helpful, since I am a visual learner. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to start over with this top with the same fabric or new fabric from my stash, or if I'm going to stick it out with this first attempt. Stay tuned...
