Miami, Florida, ...
I have had this fabric forever. Finally I decided to make something of it. I made this retro top by Zahra but I had to modify it a bit to fit me right and cut that flare at the bottom a bit since it did not look that nice on me. I added a panel at the bottom and put a broche flower on the top panel that is removable to give it a bit of the character. I don’t like too much this fabric because it is not stretchy at all so it had to be a bit loose for me to be able to move. Also I did not have a zipper and I did not really feel like going to Wal-Mart at 10 pm to look for one so I decided to use buttons that are pearl but I wrapped fabric around them to make them match the blouse. This fabric is see through too, but I can leave with that. Overall it turned out better then I expected!
