This is another top made from the scraps left over from the scraps used to make the Infinity Drape Tank Top. The lady refused to discard and insisted on making something else out of these (uploaded an image of the scraps). Anyway, it has now turned into asymmetric top instead, and yup, asymmetric it is. Took awhile to piece them together by means of draping, serging and top stitching. Added organza for the collar tie and the hemline is twin needle stitched. There is a shoulder opening for easy wearing. This top has no side seam, except for a shoulder seam where the opening is created with bias binding and tie. It is tubular and then draped/cut and shaped on a ‘L’ sized mannequin for the one-shoulder pleat-drape. Finished with rolled hem on one armhole and bias facing on the other armhole. Hope she likes it. I think I might be getting ‘scrap-phobia’!
