Description

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.

Material Notes

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.

    Very pretty! I would not have given the line drawing of the pattern more than a quick glance, if I hadn’t seen your lovely adaptation of the pattern! I bet your mum loves it!
