The cropped top was created for my school’s annual fashion show, to be contrasted with a shiny grey dress (to be posted soon). It is made from a fantastic crinkle chiffon and just really reminded me of urban artwork. I fell in love with the colors and bought more yards than required, so I can’t wait to make more things out of this great print! The top does have a slightly longer back than front. All the princess seams are french-seamed and all the hems are clean-finished (rolled under twice and stitched down). It was too light of material to serge.
