Fine, Fix or Flick – Are You Strong Enough?

 

I wonder if  Structural Integrity in Garment making is an elective unit because my suspicions are that this designer missed the day they talked about Gravity at school.

And also – methinks it’s cheating to have the model lying on her side in the case of this top.

On the plus side, I Lerve this colour.  I want to keep this yarn as breeding stock to produce more blush/ wine tops.

The beads scattered throughout the fabric? That’s rather -not- me, but I can understand how a teen/ junior20ish could love this.

The stitchwork in the neckline is where the hairs on the back of my neck start to stand up.  That is a simply terrific stitch pattern – Irish crochet hankerchief edging put to work somewhere.. where it may not be able to stand the strain.

Five points of attachment in front (guessing the same in back…) is not a lot.

So – for today’s Fine, Fix or Flick – What would you do? Are you confident that your work would hold up? If you bought it off the rack or had finished the item and doubts were growing  – What would you do to gird the neckline and avoid a Wardrobe malfunction?

    I absolutely love this top, beads and all. I think it is not for those with ample bosoms but would work well for those of us who are mammary impaired. Not having the big pigs stretching and sagging the top would avoid a malfunction I think. If I were 40 years younger and I would make this for myself.
