Description

I had this beautiful satin fabric in my stash and decided the print would be too small for an entire dress, so I made a top instead (does anyone know what this print is? It’s not a paisly… but not a floral either, I’m confused about what to call it).

I used a basic woven top sloper and just freehand drew the shape of the front and back top edge.

The side seams are french seamed to stop the fraying and the bottom edge is turned under twice and machine stitched. For the top edge though, to keep it as light as possible I hand stitched it once all around with tiny catch stitches, then turned it back down to cover the raw edge and stop fraying and hand stitched again with invisible stitches. The straps are just thin spagetti straps made of another satin I had in my stash of a very similar solid colour.

For fit I just made some darts from the side to the bust, and very lightly curved the side seams to give it some shape.

I like the silhouette it gives me, nice for summer tops, I might make some more now that I’ve seen how easy it is! I will use a lighter woven next time, this satin was medium weight and some seams are a little bulky.

    Cute little top! I might call that fabric print a foulard print, but I am not 100% sure. I like it though!

      Thank you very much! Ah yeah, I’ve heard of that name, that might be more appropriate!
