Description

I found this amazing idea, to create a convertible top from a triangle with just 2 slits as arm holes.
You can wear it with the wrap in front (and then the tip of the triangle is tucked in at the neck), or with the wrap at the back, and then the tip is draped in front, like a cowl.
Since my fabric is pretty on both sides (black with grey dots on one side, and plain black on the other side), I can wear this top in 4 different ways!
I did not have the pattern, but I figured I could try to recreate it.
Measurements are:
Triangle is 107*107cm (used a remnant).
Slits begin 23cm from bottom of triangle, and are 18cm long. They are distanced 38cm apart.
I added long straps (because tying without them was difficult) – 70cm long and 13cm wide.

Material Notes

Printed jersey, elastic bias tape for the armholes

    I’ve just bought this pattern from Styl Arc (an Australian company), looking forward to making the top as it looks so flattering.
