Asymmetric mustard Drape Drape top

Added Apr 26, 2013

London, United K...






This is from the second Drape Drape book, a Japanese book series with patterns provided, albeit in tiny Japanese sizes! I really love the asymmetric draping down the right side – this top is only one piece of fabric so it’s easy and quick to sew, and is a great alternative to your average teeshirt!

My only warning – RAISE THE NECKLINE! I raised the original 10cm/4" to what you see here!

Material Notes

Mustard viscose lycra jersey from Tissue Fabrics – I love this stuff, it’s about the 6th or 7th time I’ve sewn with it in various colours!

    I have raised the neckline..still quite scooped :( ..still Yes. It is a nice pattern. Looking for the Burdastyle’s tutorial for the collar’s calculation. Do you remember the name of the tutorial

    The colour suits your autumnal colouring perfectly. You look great!
