Description

This pattern is from Japenese pattern book Drape Drape, it sNo 13. Loose Drape Top.

The fabric I used was an op-shop find for $4 and wasn’t quite long enough to fit the pattern so I had to separate one of the pattern pieces and cut the back panel on it’s own. And then the other back panel ended up on the cross-grain, so the back is a bit wierd.

The hardest part for this top was tracing out the pattern. Now I have traced plenty of patterns from BWOF Mags, but I now think that they are easy because of the colour coding. The Drape Drape book patterns are all in black and it was quite confusing. I ended up drawing over the ones i needed with my daughter’s crayon and then went over again with carbon paper and brown paper underneath. All in all, a bit more time consuming than I’m used to.

After that the pattern comes together quite simply, but I wasn’t paying attention when I pinned together so I tucked the front drape piece over rather than under and now more of the wrong side of the fabric shows. It doesn’t detract from the top so still very happy with the end result.
