Description

I’ve had some fabric left from a dress that turned out too small and didn’t fit me so I though of making a top not to waste the fabric. I found this top that didn’t consumed much and manage to make it with what I had left. I had to add a few cm to the sides ‘cause I’m a size 38/40, but that was about it. I also didn’t make the top ruffles as it didn’t really match with the pattern of the fabric.
It’s a little bit wrinkly in the photos just ‘cause my posture it’s not good.

Material Notes

I’m using a non-stretchable lightweight cotton blend, it has a name, but I honestly don’t know it.

    its nice. did u add darts to the lower part below the bust?.if you didn’t this could have been the cause of the wrinkles not that your posture is not good.keep trying.Cheers!
