Winter white

Remnants are a challenge but this time I found an easy solution to reworking this fabric from White Tree Fabrics for Winter.
I put my 'jigsaw hat' on and lined up the centre front to turn this fabric into and basic top but with a v-neck option by adding an invisible zipper at the front neckline.
This fabric from White Tree Fabrics has a textured finish so slow sewing was the best way to make sure the machine stitching stayed even.
I originally used this fabric on the centre pieces of my third Outlander outfit so I knew the stretch this fabric provided.
So the decision to use the remaining fabrics for a Winter White top was logical. Here's how I've worn this top (McCalls 4261) to work.
I added a centre back seam for more shaping over my sway back shape.
So on the weekend when it's a bit colder, I simply zip the neckline up and I'm 'good to go'.
So I'm really happy to be able to finally have a Winter white top that's versatile. Thanks White Tree Fabrics.
