I started this top using New Look 6816 after being inspired by Bola’s Cream Turtle Bat (although I know this looks nothing like it… there’s another one coming later). I liked her cinched band around the waist, so that’s what I was going for here. I made it in a hurry so I could wear it for Thanksgiving today, so I made a few mistakes. Also, I had a very limited amount of material cut into wide strips, so that’s what I had to use.
Instead of ruching the top where it meets the waistband, I added elastic. I also ruched the side seams at the bottom (although it’s hard to tell from these pictures).
