If you use same fabric for the binding, you just extend the binding around the armhole & go up another designated number of inches to make the ties. Otherwise, just use bias binding for the armhole & straps. It's like you're making a strap, enclosing the armhole & then making another strap all in one step. Hope this is clear as mud.

Marty, the instructions made it hard. I got one done but what a pain. I knew I should trim the seams before trying to turn the strap inside out but the instructions didn't say anything about trimming before turning. It is a spegettii strap. I can't imagine Why they made it so dificult. I am making a second one so it will go smoother next time. I think I will do it your way next time.

I'm all in. Lets get some sleep. I hope I don't get called in. My head hurts tonight. Think a little tylenol is in order.
My eyes are probably dry and making my head hurt. Time for eye drops too.
Get some sleep Marty. Its a new day. Sleep tight. Don't let the bedbugs bite.

I finaly got the :x darned spegettii straps turned. What a chore. The next top should go faster. Now for the dreaded :? button placket.

I use an edge joining foot & keep the blade just left of the seamline. I focus on where the needle goes not anything else.

I can do the stitch in the ditch on the straight seams but the armscye seams at the edge of the binding, well I just am all over the place and not int the ditch even with my stitch itn the ditch foot. I'll try again tomorrow.

You could hand stitch it down, it's not that big an area to do.

Laura, I just felt it would be sturdier if machine stitched. I have made so many errors on this top that even though the stitching in the ditch is done poorly, it will just have to do. Now I have dicided that I have the buttons on a bit out of line and will resew them. I have also learned that one needs to make sure the button plackett needs to be the same length on both sides of the center front. :brick: . No wonder I have not been sewing much. I even put the button holes in wrong and didn't notice the problem till I finished cutting them open. I kept thinking that the pattern company made a mistake because they didn't make the button plackett wide enough. My bad. They didn't mean for me to run the button holes crosswise on the plackett. :brick: :brick: Where was my mind??????. This is a learning experience, this is a learning experience. This is........... This is............ This is..........

Here is a link to the pattern. I am making view B. I am finished with the wearable muslin except for redoing the buttons and buttonholes. The top is about 30 inches in diameter at underarm level and expands rapidly to 40inches at brest level. Chloe is 27 in the chest and bra cup is nearly non-existant. her hips are 27 also I think. I think I will cut some out of the next top width and taake out some of the flare. Do you suppose it will still hang like the top on the front of the pattern? I think it will be a source of embarresment when she bends forward if I don't. Should I just take out some of the gathering in the front and back and cut the excess off at center front. I did lengthen the top by 2 inches first time around because Chloe wears her pants down on her hips. The first one is lined but the second one will not be .

I think that I would take some out of the sides & put make the front band smaller since Chloe's chest is 3 inches smaller than the given measurement. It's going to be very loose fitting with a 40 inch hip on a 27 inch hip. That's 13 inches in excess. I would use your pattern drafting software to make the entire pattern smaller to fit Chloe better for the next top. Just thinking here ...
