This top is based on the Batwing pattern posted by pixielink. Again I a making use of donated material! The fabric was given to me by my Mother in Law.
I didn’t hem any of the seams and although I don’t own an overlocker I used just a very small zig zag stitch around the edge. The fabric is quite sheer so it is a top that I will wear with a singlet underneath. I felt it looked like a bit of a tent on me so I got out the trusty shirring again and shirred under the bust to give more definition between bust and belly. I think possibly the large I made is too big also and I could have used the medium instead.
