Description

I used one of the nice ikea prints for this top and just experimented a bit.
It is gathered under the bust where I also put in some elastic.
At the neckline there are some small pleats.
To sew on the bias binding around the neckline+armholes I used green thread to repeat the colour of the plants on the fabric

Material Notes

Ikea fabric, elastic, bias binding

      Thank you! I didn’t use a pattern. I got the shape for the upper part from a tank I had but added the pleats and some width because my fabric wasn’t stretchy. For the lower part I just cut the fabric the way I thought it would look good when added to the first part, it’s shaped like a trapezoid. The fabric wasn’t expensive, so I thought I could risk experimenting a bit.

      Me too : ) I’ve wanted to make something of it since they started selling it. I also love the bird print, I’ve almost finished a jacket I lined with it.
