Retro Slytherin

Two years ago, I turned 40. At the time, I wanted to take a quick trip to Universal Studios to see Harry Potter world. It just wasn’t in the cards at the time.

This year, I finally get to add a trip to Universal to the tail end of my Costume College trip. I’m super excited and have added some quick sewing projects to my preparations.

My favorite so far is this little top I made using the book Gertie Sews Jiffy Dresses. The pattern is the Popover dress, shortened to be a top.

This is my second time using the pattern. I used the size for my upper bust measurement, since it’s so roomy in the bust already. This time around, I raised the neckline a bit and opted to finish the neckline with bias instead of the folded over facing.

For a final touch, I added spangles and beads to create snake eyes on the shoulder ties.

Next up…a pair of pedal pushers using the pattern from Gertie Sews Vintage Casual.
