The first thing I like about the Take the plunge top is the lower back reduction. I usually take out excess fabric at the back so when I saw this option I wanted to try it out and it works great. No cutting issues here yet… Because I already did not have the right height of my fabric to cut out the second sleeve I added an extra colour block. I love colour blocks and asymmetrical garments are even better. Only when I started sewing did I realise I cut out the wrong front piece (as in another back piece). Of course I did not have enough fabric to cut a new front. I like to get my garments out of pieces of fabric that are just the right size (or maybe just not the right size when you make a cutting mistake). I had to get creative and had to add some pieces of fabric to get the right front piece. The extra seams on the front are thus from my cutting mistake.
I also like the splits at the bottom of the top, it gives it a nice little touch. The Take the plunge is the pattern of the week, so you can get it with a discount this week.
