After I finished my twist front dress I was left with fabric enough for a top but they were actually scraps. (I hate throwing them away and also if I keep them aside, I would forget about it) So I thought long and hard and tried many ways and finally I was able to make this top. I saw a Bebe top somewhere on the net, and adapted the basic cowl pattern to make something similar to it. I added cap sleeves. I fought with my twin needle to finish the edges of the cap sleeve, gave up n just folded them over n stitched. the bottom band is x2. Now I think it pairs better with my black jeans(blah)
