I made this top a while ago but couldn’t get it to upload into the creations. It is made from a recycled man’s shirt. I used the buttons from the front of the shirt as a feature at the back of the top. I have to leave the bottom button undone because it is too small and sits on my hips. It also sags a bit at the top of the back. Both things to fix if I make this pattern again.
Recycled men’s shirt. Thought it was cotton but after ironing it I think it is some sort of synthetic.
