Super romantic Port Elizabeth summer top

Added Apr 7, 2011

by Sofiagynther

Stockholm, Sweden






My first top, based on the Port Elizabeth pattern. I added a strap of snapbuttons (can you say that?) in the front and facing along the neckline so that I can keep a couple of buttons open and still not show the wrong side of the fabric.
It is pretty short and looks really sweet with a waist high skirt or jeans.
I love this pattern and will definately use it again!

Material Notes

Cotton print fabric, snapbutton strap




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Romantic, Victorian

    Hörru snapbuttons är ju en kalasbra idé! Måste kolla om det finns på min tygaffär här i byn. Jag är kär i den här blusen. Jag ser framför mig hur du vandrar sävligt på en sommaräng med den. Sävligt. Nästan i slow motion. :)

      Sjukt bra idé. Fick däremot leta i en evighet, hittade tillslut i en sån där liten affär i city som bara säljer band och snören och som förmodligen legat där i hundra år och lever endast på att ingen annan skulle våga öppna något så smalt. Säg till om du inte får tag i så kan jag skicka till dig, det finns svart och vitt.
      Sävlig! Så jäkla fint! Ska försöka lev upp till det med allt jag är värd!

    Oh I love this! Would make a rather fabulous jacket too! Lovely fabric usage and what a clever idea for the snap tape! I’ve always wanted to use that and have never really found a use. Lovely work!

      Thank you! So it’s called snap tape! Good, I’m still learning these terms in english, so thank you again!
      Yes, a jacket would be nice! I’m still just a beginner at sewing garment so eventually maybe I’ll be able to get a jacket together too!

      Thanx! Next time I think I’ll let the buttonstrap go all the way down :)
