Finally! I feel like I haven’t finished a new project in so long. It was really good to get this top done; I’ve been working on it on and off for months.
The pattern’s Vogue 1170 (it’s a Rachel Comey design). I did floral applique to the back to add interest. The main fabric is vintage from an antique store, and the solid pink fabric on the back is from a thrifted nightgown I chopped up. Total material cost for this project was only $5. The top’s super comfortable; I’m really happy with the outcome!
