Added May 8, 2012
I made this top primarily to go with this wonderfully sparkly True Decadence pencil skirt, that I’ve had for some time. I wanted something plain, that would offset the skirt, but with enough drama to hold its own. The top also looks great with jeans, for a smart/casual look.
The pattern is It’s So Easy It’s Simplicity 4123, which I picked up for $1.34. I added fusible interfacing to the flutter sleeves, to reinforce them and give them an architectural quality. I really wanted to finish this top well, so I used bias binding for the first time to finish off the raw edges.
