This was from the retro top pattern by Zahra. I loved the look of this pattern and had to try it to see if it suited me. This turned out so good I had to wear it straight away! It looks great with black cullottes. I only had a little trouble getting the black neckband to sit flat to my skin and solved it by folding it in half lengthwise to hem it. The difficulty was mainly my choice of a less stretchy t shirt material. I don’t know how to do zips yet so didn’t do one (it wasn’t needed with the very stretchy material)
black t shirt material and funky print very stretchy light knit material don’t know the name was in remnant bin
Zahra for the Retro top pattern-thanks!
