I finished this top just in time to wear it to afternoon tea at the Grand Hotel, so, a Tea Top it is! I was inspired by Maryy:s black top Ou Bow with a white ruffled edge, this is my version :-). It’s a fitted top with princess-seams, a draped bust and a little pleated satin-edge. I used lingerie-style hook- and eye-ribbon instead of a zipper in the back, they’re very easy to use and I think they add an interesting detail, that I just love.
I made the pattern using Maryy’s How-to for the bust of the Hot Hot Heat-dress, and combined the resulting bust with my own pattern for a fitted top. I could probably have reached the same result by simply changing the pattern instead, but this was more hands-on and fun!
