One-piece scoop neck asymmetrical Top - Jacket and Shorts

Added Aug 26, 2015

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






This is another top from my Drape book no. 2. The pattern looks very funny, but the top is really nice to wear :) The jacket is from Burda Easy Fashion 2010 and I have used chambray cotton fabric both for the jacket and shorts. I found the shorts pattern in Burda 07/2008. To cheer it up I have used red tread as top stitching. I like this jacket pattern a lot and have made it once before which you can see here if you like.

Material Notes

Chambray cotton fabric and micro satin as lining.
Viscose jersey for the top.

    Ideal combination for summer-short sleeves and pants for hot days and the jacket to save you from the twilight mosquitoes when outside for a campfire, movie or concert!

    I like the combination of grey and red very much! And this outfit is one of the great examples of its splendor. Wonderful top, the arrangement of the stripes is so nice and makes the silhouette very dynamic. Impressive result!

    Awesome outfit ! Great fit. I still think the jacket design looks great on you, and I love that shorts design. Once again, beautiful from 2008 ! I like the red buttons on the shorts, and the red lining looks rich. I really like this top, and the fabric choice is great for the design.
