I made this top because I was inspired by a top I saw a girl wearing at work. I asked her where it came from and she was really happy to say she was “sorry but it was from Italy”.
Despite it’s wearer I still loved it and started on a quest to make it. That was back in October before my knee gave up on me and decreased my mobility severely. So now with lots of physio and a little sweat and tears i’m able to move properly-ish so I thought I’d get cracking with this bitch of a pattern, 1 peice for the front sleeves and top of the back then I did the bottom of the back seperately. So finally I’ve made it and a little mistake I made, made it even better :)
First garment of the new year, boo yah!
