The top was constructed based on pattern 102 of Burda Style Magazine 5/2011.
I have added aqua bias binding, aqua sequins (hand applied) and vintage look lace.
The material is a genuine military map. A client approached me with these fabulous maps and I could not resist the temptation…
Whilst sewing the top I had a small cloud of chalk dust coming out of the fabric and I had that weird feeling of being cast back in the past.
It’s been really interesting making these tops, and a pleasure!
The top construction is pretty simple, and it did not take too long. However, the fabric is extremely difficult to work with!
