Tops For My Mom

Added Aug 7, 2013

by velvetribbon

Macau, Macao






I made the three tops especially for my mom. I will meet her on the vacations very soon, so I wanted to make something nice for her to wear. I just hope that she will like it and the tops will fit her nicely.

The first and second top based on Burdastyle Lace Dress 04/2013 size 44 with adjustment on the waist and hips area. And the third top based on Burdastyle Printed Tunic (plus size) 01/2013 size 44, but I only used the upper and the sleeve pattern.
I sew the button on the back of each top and added sleeve tabs for all of them.
