Description

The first time I did sewn this top was 20 years ago..! I like the pattern very much so I wanted to sew a black one as well. I have used linen fabric and it’s very comfortable and nice to sew with. The pattern is from Miss B 1992. I found a picture of me and my husband when I wear my first top :) – Then I used pink poplin.
The tights are “younger” and I have used a pattern from a Scandinavian sewing magazine and it’s sewn of viscose fabric.

Material Notes

Linen fabric for the top and viscose fabric for the tights.

    Great top Ellen! This style really suites you. And you haven’t changed a bit :) I actually very much like this idea to use the same pattern after some years have gone by. This really shows how timeless this top is. And what a huge difference the choice of fabric can make.

    Love the shots from days gone by. Amazing how fabric choice changes the look of a piece of clothing. Who would’ve thought a pattern from the nineties would still work so well.
