This top is based on the free Burda Style pattern The Sonja Dress. The fabric is very special because it was sent to me from a friend in Niger. It is Nigerian ankara, a kind of resin-printed fabric. As for the pattern, I took the dress and shortened it to make a peplum top as these have been heavily featured this season!
100% cotton Nigerian ankara
