I tried to follow Zahra’s cute pattern for the “retro top” but ended up modifying it a bit. (I also had a few problems with the printed pattern, but maybe I just didn’t print it right… I included a picture of my futile attempt to make it all fit ;-))
My modifications: I used jersey for the main part – so no need for a zipper. I also found that the flared style wasn’t exactly flattering on me, so I changed the cut from flared to straight. The facing is made from (inflexible) cotton, so on the bottom part, where the bow is tied, the facing is not connected to the body all the way to retain enough flexibility to pull the top your head when the bow is untied.
Black Jersey and patterned Cotton (inflexible) for the facing, plus lining for the facing.
Flirty dresses, a cropped cami, and glam trousers for modern flappers.
