I squeezed this top out of 0.77 yards of remnant fabric. I used Vogue 8790 for the basic silhouette but had to modify it significantly due to fabric restraints. I eliminated the faux wrap and waist gathers, added center seams in front and back, and used some scraps to make the ties in front.
I think I like the color, though it’s quite bright. See more musings about it on my blog !
