Description

Just like the other persons who made it, it was love at first sight with this top… But I found the magazine version a bit too boring, too sad, for a summer project… So I made my version : much more colourful!
I also slightly shortened the sleeves. I wanted them even shorter but finally I liked them that way. And yeah, the neckhole is too big… But it gives it a sexy look!
Oh and the big bow! I love it ^^

The pictures aren’t great, so I added some “effects”… It’s the best I can get with my old camera :(

    Your vision was spot on! Its so lovely. Good thinking adding the straps. I dont mind when neckholes are big but its annoying when they keep falling over your shoulders!
