Description

I made this with a remnant scrap of jersey left over from my How-Do-You-Bardot Maillot. I didn’t have quite enough to make the back from one piece, so had to patch it together.

I used this great BurdaStyle tutorial for finishing the bottom edge.

I scored the vintage wallpaper at a stoop sale.

    You have made a lovely top and I actually think the way you have put the back together with a patchwork effect makes the top unique and very up market. I too love making something out of scraps as it is more challenging and satisfying. Well done.

    Stunning! Isn’t it amazing what you can come up with when you have scraps to work with? Well done.

      It somehow feels even more rewarding to figure out how to use old scraps than just sewing regular yardage:)

      I totally agree. There is an added challenege in it and it gives me a kcick to figure it out! I’ve also been doing a lot of leftover work lately. And hey, it’s easier on the pocket! :-)
