I have made this top for my daughter Yolanda. She has had her eye on it. I bought some black ruffled jersey in the market last Saturday £1.50 a metre so this top cost around £1 as I still have quite a lot of fabric left.
As it is jersey, it doesn’t really need a zip so I did not use it. I made the smallest size for her and I will take her on Saturday when I’ll go to see her play (last night) in Northampton. she will start a new play in London . It is a completely new play called Birdland.

I’ll take some picture when she use it.

    Very nice, the ruffle effect balances the the strict black colour. It attracts a lot of attention:-)

      Thanks Mary. It fits her better than I thought it would be. She was in the dressing room with her hair on a net ready for the wig! French Revolution type of hair!
