Description

This top was (once again) made from my mom’s left over fabric that she used for the couches. It is a good quality tapestry. I knew that I wanted to make something from it as soon as I saw the fabric.

I used an old dress pattern that I shortened to make a top – and then i added the long contrasting zipper at the back. I fully lined it with shwe-shwe fabric.

My logo is cut out of black and white leather off-cuts.

    I like it! The fabric in combination with the pattern gives it a really nice shape!

    I love tapestry garments! I hadn’t seen a tapestry top before and I like very much the idea. It looks even more nice with the exposed zipper. Super trendy:)
