Coral Crop-Top

Added Nov 14, 2011

Malta, Malta






A comfy crop top that I made from the fabric of an old pencil skirt. It closes in the front center with several hooks and eyes.The fabric buttons I had specially made, and the lacey straps had been salvaged from another shirt years back and just so happened to match perfectly!!

It all came together surprisingly quickly, obviously with the help of my beloved bodice pattern which i frequently make use of for these types of fitted garments :P

The pictures were taken at night with a bad camera so sorry about the poor quality =S …
Modeled on Abi :)

      Sorry to be replying so late :S just a basic corset pattern that I shortened at the waist and left open at the front for hook-and-eyes to open and close the top.

      No, I had a professional tailor make me my own personal bodice/corset pattern a couple years ago with my exact measurements. It’s perfect for when i want to make something fitted, like this top.
