Petal me sexy

Eureka , Califor...






I took some thin fabric and made a sexy romantic fabulous top. The front is double layered but the rest is see-thru. I cut out the petals and sewed them on layer by layer. The back also has them but I don’ have a pic. I wore it out and my husband asked me where I got this shirt since it looked new..hehe I fooled him. It is super comfortable..I love it. It just needs to be worn in warm weather. The only thing I wanted to add was a pocket. The top is long enough to wear with leggings, a cute belt at the waist is super cute and my party skirt looks really cute with it too. I did not use any pattern.

Material Notes

Thin gray fabric, gray thread




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Casual, Romantic


Spring flowers and April showers

    So nice! I love the petals on your top, they’re like an interesting take on ruffles which seem to be kind of popular right now. Looks gorgeous!
