Dark deep blue top I made for a project in school. I created the desing and made the pattern for it. It is very fitted. My instructor picked that design for me out a bunch of sketches I had showed to her. She thought that design would allow me to experiment several elements and techniques for pattern drafting. So I went for it. Drafting the pattern was not hard but sewing it was a nightmare. The design consists of about 15 pattern pieces but I was happy with the final result. I also top stiched all the seams to make the lines more bold and visible!
