Description

Although I am usually a sheath dress and a pencil skirt kind of a woman, but for some reason when I saw the 02/2014 off-the-shoulder top #104 and the pleated yoked skirt #105 I knew I wanted a version of it. I didn’t want to use any heavy fabric as there is no use for it in our climate, so when I saw this mellow yellow linen/cotton blend fabric at Michael Levine I thought it would be perfect. At first I wanted to combine the pieces into a dress, then I thought the skirt is too cute to limit the use of it. So, I made a crop top so I can wear it with other things (I can see it with a high-waisted skinny pant)… It was a big hit at my parents’ Easter party & I felt kind of girly in it :))

Note: Because I made it a crop top I had to put the side zipper upside down so I can put it on.

    Wow, great idea to make this top cropped! All together it looks stunning on you! It inspires me to sew similar ensemble for summer.
