This is a simple top I designed and draped over my new dressform, a Burdastyle giveaway from last Christmas season. It’s made from some stretchy red fabric, of unknown origin, that my friend rescued and gave me.
It is really nothing more than a rectangle, with a cutout for the neck, stitched on both sides loosely following my contour, and with a dropped and gathered waistband, that you can’t see in the pic.
I wear this top everywhere, as it is super comfortable and flattering (it hides my little front pouch ;-))
