Cream Turtle Bat!

Leeds, United Ki...






Here is my Turtle neck batwing top. The idea for this top came about after Lydia (Polychromatin) and I were inspired by a batwinged top we had seen another member (tmac).
The neckline is from the Anda pattern and the Bishop sleeves are adapted from a vintage dress pattern (the yellow sleeves in the 3rd pic are literally just sleeves I cut off from a Primark top).
You can also wear the top both ways – great for getting dressed in the winter time now the mornings are dark!

Material Notes

Cream Jersey





Ah ha (thanks Lydia) – thanks to tmac for her turtle neck top!

      HI Luzziie sorry for the late reply- I haven’t viewed this page for a long while!! the bottom part is simply a rectangular band!bx

    It was only a few days ago when I thought about making a shirt like this: Wide tight-fitting waist part and cuffs, loose sleeves and upper part of the shirt :) But I haven’t had any time to sew that yet, but this looks cool so maybe I will soon!

    Ahh, you make blush, because mine does never look half as good as yours :D I love how yours turned out! The wide cuffs were definitely a good idea! Looks great on you! Btw: I saved the creation under my favorites: The original top is from tmac.

    I love it – I love it – I love it! I have something similar (the only thing is that I bought it – didn’t attempt sewing it). Excellent job!

    lol, i’m not that fast! I made a number of things in one go and then my computer broke so I couldn’t take proper pics and upload them- here i’m at work, and there’s an in-built camera in the monitor!
