I loved my grandma’s lace tablecloth, so I decided to transfrom it into a batwing top. It’s basically a blouse, but with batwing sleeves, very big and comfortable to wear. The batwing top also looks good in chiffon.
I added a pocket in front, some decorative (sealife themed) buttons, a big collar and cuffs.
Here’s the pattern I used:
I made the top a little longer than the original pattern, about 15 cm longer!
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
