Den Haag, Nether...
No scraps on my watch indeed, because I’ll try to make something of even the smallest leftover. I made this top from the mystery fabric left over from my boyfriend’s most recent new shirt. After the pleated top, I wanted to try a more flowy version with gathers. There wasn’t enough fabric to consider gathers at the back, but I think it’s roomy enough as it is. I also made my first peter pan collar here. It looks quite dowdy on the dummy but it is better on (although I really should get my hands on a real colour soon…;)
brown/grey/purple mystery fabric, bais tape, buttons
