I saw a top a bit like this in a shop a few weeks ago, although it was all black. I was slightly reluctant to make one when I found out they were very popular at the moment. I tend not to follow fashions. It made me think about a discussion I once had with one of my friends : she said that if you don’t buy something in fear of being a “follower”, you are still being influenced by deciding to do the opposite to other people.
Anyway, I made the top with contrasting bows and trim, and I love it!
I had planned on putting something on the front, but I decided to leave it simple. It closes at the back with a popper on the first bow.
