I couldn’t wait to make this top. And I wasn’t disappointed. I dyed some eyelet blend fabric with black dye to achieve this grey linen look! I expected it wouldn’t completely dye black but I am more than happy with the result. Kind of looks like linen now! The pattern is from Burda Magazine, issue 5/2012 and is a great little timeless retro number which will be great for work with pencil skirts. I will definitely make this again, in a different colour fabric but perhaps a little smaller and make the neckline a little wider. Other than that, no other alterations needed. Another doozy from Burda! More details “here”: http://www.ooobop.com/2012/06/30/lady-grey-retro-top/.
