I had another crack at this easy top I attempted for The “That’s Torn It” Top. Mark took photos on a a family outing to Sydney Live Steam Locomotive Society. So much for family time it ended up with one of the kids refusing to be with us and then the little getting himself lost for a while.
This is a great little top if you are smallish in the bust – as it creates the illusion of a little more in that area. If you have plenty – I would opt for something with minimal detail and a lower neckline.
Again, the sewing was super easy, The cotton I used did not drape beautifully like that silk did. While I really like the graphic print, the fabric creased rather badly after the car ride and I looked quite pregnant, or it could be all the Christmas mince pies I have been eating lately.
It’s a great top for work and I feel quite dressed up in it, it will be useful this summer – and the Jacaranda’s are in flower – aren’t they pretty!
