This still needs A LOT of work! Any comments would be extremely helpful. I wanted to create a top that was layered over itself many times, and an obnoxiously large hood. It zips up on the side. It still needs sleeves, lining, and maybe a solid fabric to tone it down. I didn’t use a pattern; I just folded fabric over a model of my torso to see how it would hang, and went from there.
African print cotton, 14 inch zipper
My mom, for helping me make the model.
My dog. She is always approving, no matter what I sew :)
