Star(less) Struck

Start Struck – George+Ginger

I honestly thought I couldn’t love this pattern any more than I already did… I was wrong. Oh, so wrong.

After watching the latest video on G+G’s YouTube channel I got obsessed with Kristi’s top and just had to give that version a go.

It’s a very simple modification to make and the result is an entirely different top from the ones I made previously.

It’s just a matter of adding some lace to the main strap and omitting the other ones. Simple as that! Kristi will be talking about that on YouTube next week, so keep an eye out. 😉

I used a 7″ wide stretch lace and removed about 1.5″ from one edge before applying it.

I love how romantic it looks!

I had originally planned to hack this one into a bodysuit but didn’t have enough fabric and had no patience to wait for a new order. I needed to make it asap, so it’s a top like the previous ones.

Do you have that as well? When a project gets in your mind and you have to make it immediately?

This pattern is a definite winner in my book!
Off to dig through my stash and cut another one…

    De originele versie is niet onmiddellijk mijn stijl, iets te weinig verhullend (ik durf zoiets gewoon niet aan), maar deze aanpassing vind ik wel zéér geslaagd! Inderdaad helemaal anders, en veel ‘zachtaardiger’. Mooi!

    Deze is echt prachtig! Wow, ik volg Deborah hierin, deze versie is mijn favoriet! Livia je schrijft dat je 1,5 inch van één hoek kant hebt weggehaald, begrijp ik het goed dat je een rechte lap kant hebt maar aan de lange kant van voor naar achter toe min die 1,5 inch? Mercikes! Ann

      Hoi Ann,
      Ja precies dat! 😉

  3. Hi Livia. Love all your star strucks, amazing how different the two versions come out! When you make the top, do you use the bottom of the bodice included with the pattern before attaching the ‘rest’ of the top or do you just attach the top piece to the bottom of the boobs? Thank you!

      Hi Jenny,

      For the white one, I used the waistband included and just added the “skirt” to it. The black one I blended it with the Road Trip bodysuit and omitted the waistband.
      Both are doable, so it depends on what look you want to go for 😉
