I'm rather pleased with myself for managing to sew a chiffon top as a beginner! This also marks my first top, as well as a bunch of other firsts (french seams, successful sba, working with bias, and bias binding)!
I made two muslins, and the fit isn't perfect, but it works well enough for me! I'm going to do another post on my fitting changes :)

However, cutting was still a nightmare- it was so slippery, slide-y and crazy. I would have done a lot better with a better cutting area I think (mine wasn't wide enough to accomodate the pattern pieces, so I had to shift fabric in the middle of cutting- NOT recommended!). In the end, I was rather surprised and pleased to find that this came out looking like a top!

Heh heh :)
