Description

This new top was the culmination of many ideas. These ideas included:

1) I wanted to make a top with a peplum. I’ve wanted to make one since before they were all over the shops.

2) My friend had asked me if I knew how to replicate this dress. I thought I’d attempt to figure it out! http://www.modcloth.com/shop/dresses/luck-be-a-lady-dress-in-powder-blue

3) I wanted to use my bodice block to make a top (I’d only made dresses using it up until now).

4) I’d been wondering about wearing linen. I’ve always thought of linen as a crumply old ladies’ fabric… but then my favourite fabric shop had some in such pretty colours!

So, I came up with a plan to address all this thinking etc in one go, and here’s what I came up with (excuse the jeans – this top clearly needs some straight/skinny leg jeans, as opposed to an old pair of worn out jeans, to go with it!).

    I think this top is lovely and really looks good in linen. You can buy a really ironing spray starch that gives linen a crisp look at Woolies called CRISP. But if you don’t ironing sprays and I don’t really (chemicals rubbing on my skin etc!!) you can put your top wet from the wash into a clothes dryer on low heat and semi dry it. Then remove it from the dryer and iron it straight away and it will look nice and crisp as well.
