As a beginner sewer I was trying to find a piece that I can make myself that was quick and easy to make.
This batwing top looks effortlessly stylish when made out of chiffon. I wear a tank top underneath it and voila. It can also be made out of less see through material such as a light cotton, or warmer material to make a gorgeous winter top.
I made this top by hand using only a needle, thread and scissors. And for the first time I made a piece that not only fit me perfectly but is easy to replicate.
