I bought this top in Monsoon last summer. I wore it so much and thought to myself 'if only I could find fabric I like then I would love to make one like it'. I was in pippablue in Galway last monday and saw loads of gorgeous fabrics. I chose 2 Amy Butler fabrics and. went home full of enthusiasm
I lay out the top and cut the fabric pieces. It was tricky because there were darts on the back and the sleeves were an awkward shape. When I had it all cut out I thought ''mmmm maybe I should have cut a pattern from waste fabric first''. But I was happy with it. I actually lay out the fabric pieces on old curtain lining then and copied a pattern because I know I will be making another one of these tops.
VOILA!!! My finished top. I love it!!
Sleeves turned out great for me. I was really pleased. See how I used the other fabric to trim the edge!!
