I bought this fabric for its lovely drapey texture, and decided a cowl neck top would be perfect. I then decided it would be my upcoming birthday present, as I turn 40 in a few days, and what better way to treat myself than with clothes that I made. I plan to wear this top for my Christmas eve dinner, mistakes and all.
I have to confess the hem looks terrible, and the understitching of the facing is a mess too. I am still going to wear it though.
This top is based on Butterick 4132, but also on the cowl top/dress by Ichigogirl
Synthetic silk?? (not sure what to call it, as it was labelled only as “festive” at the fabric store XD
