Description

my well worn indian top needed an update, it had a stain or two…

so i gave it short cappy sleeves, an asian neckline (used decoration from bottom as accents on collars), turned in the buttons at the front to prnounce the V line, made two loops with gathered fabric on each side hip to make holes for my hemmed thick ribbon i made from excess material to tie at the hip, giving a bit of shape.

looks good with leggings or jeans!, gave to a friend as her birthday present – she loves it!
