Santa Fé Top - Asymmetric is life! The video tutorial

Good morning! After the long weekend, I'm back to offer you a new step-by-step video: the Santa Fé top. This beautiful pattern (available here in pdf) allows you to sew several versions: a top tied at the shoulder, an asymmetrical top with a collar, and a very simple little top with just the detail of the asymmetry that gives it a little twist. It's the version with a bow on the shoulder that I will show you in the video (to mount a collar on a top/blouse neckline, don't hesitate to consult the assembly video of the beautiful Dahlia blouse here). 

Santa Fé is an accessible sewing pattern, quick to sew, and whose asymmetry is not overly baring as the 2 shoulders are covered. It's one of my favorite patterns from the SEW ME PAMPA collection, I wore it a lot last summer. And sewing the pattern for this video was the perfect excuse to give me another new top to love ;)

And many of you ask if it's possible not to line the top to consume less fabric. I took advantage of the tutorial to show you how to draw a facing from the pattern, so you will have the choice to line your top or not!

I chose this Make My Lemonade fabric with its gorgeous pattern. I don't know if I would have used this print on a larger piece like a long dress (I was very hesitant to sew Tamara in it), but I can tell you that as a top with jeans I really like it! The advantage of this fabric is that it does not require a lining, so it is perfect for this version with facing!

Let's go...follow me in the step-by-step video of the Santa Fé top in the bow on the shoulder version and the explanation of the layout of the facing (spoiler alert... there will be the "chopstick-straw" technique makes a guest appearance :) )
