Description

A vintage style top that ties on both shoulders. I used a rarely available pattern (Style 4303 Miss). Very simplistic, however extremely elegant. Slightly off-the shoulder.

Made from black and white polkadot silk.

No zips or buttons, just a few stitches.

Worn with Autograph black trousers in heavy wool crepe. Shoes: black and white sandals, vintage. Bag: Karen Millen; Pilot sunglasses: Ralph Lauren Polo; watch, ring: Karen Millen

      There is a photo of the pattern right at the end: Style 4303. However it is quite rare, I tried to google it for a photograph and it never came up.

      Thank you! The original pattern has stitches at the back and front and overstitching along all main stitching lines. However it just did not look right for the fabric I used. Besides, difficult to match the polkadots!

      Thank you, Mary. I will add a picture of the pattern. It is a lot more sporty than my version!
