A light top to wear on it’s own or as a blouse under a classic jacket to create more sophisticated look and add colour to the image. Based on http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/072011-top-with-asymmetric-front-ruffle
I made this top for my mum, she is a teacher, so her wardrobe consist of mostly classic clothes – blouses, jackets, trousers and skirts. However this top was in a beach clothes section, with the right fabric it seems to have become more versatile.
Thought it is recommended to use print chiffon, I used a very thin cotton fabric which was a totally different garment (or 3!!!) to begin with.
I bought 3 damaged tops in TK Maxx for next to nothing, as some of the beading was missing on them (estimated value of those spangles left on garment should have been around £60 or even more), I was going to use them on other projects in the future, but not the fabric.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
