The Shrubbery Top
Pattern: This is from the may 2013 edition of mums Prima magazine. Unfortunately their patterns start at size 10 and I’m quite a bit smaller than that. It just consists of 2 pattern pieces (a front and a back) which the sleeves are included in. I think this is called a dolman sleeve top?
Alterations: I’m pretty sure that I made a muslin, but I can’t for the life of me figure out where I put it. I think I took in about an inch from the middle of both the front and the back pieces and also an inch or two from the sides.
Fabric: The fabric was leftovers of some leafy cotton that I inherited from my mum. Apparently she made flared trousers out of it… There wasn’t enough for a full length top, which was alright because now I have my first ever crop top!
The pic to your left gives you a fairly good idea of what it looks like from the inside.
Loads of thanks to Lauren who took the action shots!
