I made this top using New Look 6895. There’s something like 7" ease built in, which in my humble (novice) opinion, is completely ridiculous! My biggest fear is sizing issues, so while completely scared out of my mind, I cut 3 sizes smaller than what I normally would have and I’m actually really happy with how it turned out :D
I blogged about it at hippopotamuslee.blogspot.com!
I used a thrifted bedsheet from my local Salvation Army!

Hippie meets grunge in this plaid top with flared sleeves and a round neckline.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.

Peneloping's hand beaded frock is a real stunner.
