Still making some new summer clothes for me...I whipped up this top the other day.
It was some batik fabric I had floating around in the cupboard.
The lace trimming the bottom is a dollie cut up.
I its lovely to wear.
I just cut the band to fit around my chest just under my arms, plus seam.
The main part of the top I cut 6" wider where it joined the band. This allowed for some little pin tucks, which I felt gives a nice fall over the bust line
The hemline I made a bit wider than the bust to go over my hips.
Then added the lacy bits to brake the straight line along the hem and add interest.
I was so pleased with my top I made a dress using the same pattern only longer
Then added some Free-Motion Machine Embroidery flowers
I was really pleased with my flower...I thought they added some fun to my dress.
This is not men't to be a tutorial, just a basic out line as to how I made this top and dress.
If you have any questions please ask I would be pleased to help where I can.
