Description

A simple top made using a dress pattern from 1981 (Style 2697).

I picked up a tiny piece of this good-quality blue polka-dot fabric at a thrift store for 50 cents. Quite a bargain! I had to get creative fitting the pattern pieces – eventually I added a centre back seam and ignored grain lines.

I used scraps of white shirting for the facings & straps. All in all, the top cost 70 cents (I’m so glad I can sew!)
