Last night I was so pleased to have time to actually finish my first Quincy top. It turned out a little differently than I expected but I am still happy with the result so far. I have not actually worn it anywhere and that is the best test. I thought it would be more fitted and I even worried about it fitting over my tummy. No problem with that.
I've been so inspired by all the lovely and artful versions posted by Terri and yet I could not seem to find the time to finish my version.
I made this first version straight from the pattern envelope, size M. My only design changes were to add some top-stitching and a little bias strip to the zipper pull. While I had planned it to be a top, I may make a tank to match so that I can wear it as a jacket. It is loose enough. I hope to set up the tripod and take pictures of me wearing it soon.
I especially like the vertical lines formed by attaching the front-back to the side-sleeve. This design line seems to be slenderizing. And the collar frames the face so nicely. The sleeves are a little ho-hum, but I'm going to see if they grow on me. If not, I may add some little tucks like those in the side piece front.
