Arrested Top

Philadelphia, Un...






I was watching an episode of Arrested Development, and saw a top Lindsey was wearing that I really liked. I thought I’d try to make it. Hers was a sheer green with side slits, and what looked like ribbon straps. Mine is made out of a friend’s old pants, with no slits. I like it, though. :) It’s stretch fabric, so there aren’t any closures. I didn’t make a pattern, I just put together a series of rectangles, and used the pants’ pre-existing seams to my advantage.

Material Notes

My friend’s cotton (?) embroidered pants

Two strips of white fabric
Single-fold binding to go over the white





My friend and her collection of old clothes

The Arrested Development wardrobe designer, whoever they may be :)
