Elizabethan Top

Added Jan 6, 2011

Japan, Japan






Wool + lace top with asymmetry hem line.
It was fun to work! Wool is my favorite material;)

To make this pattern, I used my dress form a lot. Usually I start making pattern on the table, but I just used a block and pin it on the dress form, and drew lines on the paper, then cut it. I highly recommend to have a dress form if you like to make a pattern by yourself. It will surprisingly change your process of dress making!!! ………read whole story at my blog.

Material Notes

wool, polyester, button, snaps




Garment Type
Classic, Goth/Gothic Lolita, Romantic, Victorian
Polyester, Wool

      Hope Santa will find you soon;) In my opinion, there is no any reason to wait for it. I should have gotten it a lot earlier as it was THAT useful!!

      Thanks, but I purchased the pants. It’s from theory.

    Love it! The play with texture is great too. Plus I’m a fan of asymmetrical designs.
