Mamu Imke

Yay, I finally finished the Imke top I've been working on, yes, that's me - hello! (what's a photo without a baby attached to your hip?)

A few things I didn't like about this pattern. First, the instructions were minimal and a little unclear, which won't faze you if you're a pro. The second thing is the fit is a bit funny and it didn't come together quite right and needed some adjusting ( or maybe it's just me?)

My third problem was the crappy black and white spot fabric which looked very nice on the roll when I bought it but performs a little like a piece of cardboard. Not great.
Not sure if I like this top but I'll be trying the pattern again with different fabrics as I like the style.
Oh, by the way, I got my pattern from Crafty Mamas.

It was worth soldering through the probs you had it looks great on you.

Oh but it's lovely on you!!!
Hehe, I like bub accessories too! ;)
I haven't tried a Mamu yet, but I guess once you've done one, it will be much easier next time.
Yay for making something for yourself :D

nice top. I hate it when you buy a fabric and then find it hard to sew.

Oh I think you look super cute in it (and I think this is the firs time I've ever seen a photo of you - you are so pretty!!), but you've made me scared of the pattern now! I have it here but haven't done anything with it as yet....

Nice to 'see' you!
The top looks great - shame about how it was to sew.
I think a baby is the perfect accessory for every outfit.
