Retro Top modified

Added Mar 29, 2008

Silver Spring, M...






I used Zahra’s pattern for her retro top, but instead of tapering the sides, I cut them straight (so no need for zipper). I also did not add the band at the top, but instead just gathered the top neckline.

Material Notes

funky silk fabric – I bought a floor length 70’s lounge dress at my local vintage store which I refashioned into this top :)





Zahra for her retro top idea! :)

    Haha – yes the “creative chaos” comes with living in a wee studio apartment. :) Thanks for all the nice comments!

    I have the same dress from the same store – in a different color. Aqua/Blue – Goodwill, Baton Rouge. I made a tunic, pillow and a headband out of it so far! Going to use the remaining to reline a pocketbook. :) p.s. shirt looks good!

    It looks great. I like the vivid colors of the fabric and exotic print on it. And I like the creative chaos of your room. :)
