Description

I am so excited about this top that I have to share it even though it’s not quite finished. I ran out of trim for the armholes, but I’ll get some more and finish it tomorrow. It’s made from a tiny piece of antique whitework I found on ebay and it has gorgeous 1930s glass buttons.

    This is really cute! Was it hard to make? Omg and in the pic, it have a skirt very similar! You should post a pic of someone wearing it so we can see how it fits. Great job! Happy sewing!

      hahahaha you’re too sweet! Don’t worry I haven’t forgotten about you. I’m going to mum’s house tomorrow to get your pattern. Hopefully I’ll post it tomorrow, maybe Thursday!
