Montego Bay, Jam...
When I saw this organza material, I loved it, I new it was a little rough to make the top I had in mind, chiffon would have been best but pretty colored chiffons are sometimes hard to find. I made this top close to the time when peasant tops were coming back earlier this year.
It has a keyhole front which I lined and then added the buttons and loops. The keyhole goes a bit far down, I’m going to have to pin it or just wear cami underneath. When making tops like this, be mindful not to give it too much width or it will look baggy on you.
They matched the oatmeal colored material at the store that I used to make my shorts and thought they went perfectly together, it’s one of the few things that I have made that still fit.
I still haven’t worn it yet but I plan to do so the next time I go out on a date…
