Los Angeles, Cal...
I’ve been wanting one of these oversized floral tops for a while, so for my first blogiversary I decided to try my hand at making a printable pattern. I drafted the top to be loose and comfortable, with no closures so that it would be easy to sew and fit. I’m still working on pattern grading, so right now I’ve only made the pattern in my size.
I think it works well both loose or belted, and as a bonus, it works pretty well as a blouse for my 1912 skirt — very Lady Sybil or Edith.
