Norwich, United ...
I sewed this top in a rush the day before I went on holiday as I decided that I wanted a crop top. It ended up shorter than I planned so I only feel comfortable wearing it with high waisted stuff, otherwise there is just way too much flesh on show. That and our cheap flights and 15kg baggage allowance meant that in the end I didn’t actually pack it, favouring shorts and strapless tops as my casual outfits. Not only was I short on time but I was also short on material so this top actually has seams down the front and back as well as at the sides. If anyone notices I’ll pretend it’s a deliberate design feature. I used my self made pattern, also seen here and here, but made is shorter (obviously) and reduced the width of the pattern.
