Birthday top for mum x

Added Feb 24, 2014

Antrim, Co Antri...






This is another top from the moda simplicity magazine i bought in spain. My mum loves these wrap tops. This was made with a lovely soft black knit with silver stars. I decided to add some interest by doing one side of the bodice + sleeve in a toning silver fabric. It looks lovely on mum and hopefully we’ll get a good night out for her to wear it. I intend to make mum some sleeveless versions for our next holiday x

    Wrap tops are always winsome and look both modern and womanish. This combination of Yin and Yang is lovely:-)

    Your mother looks great in her new top! Black and white is always nice together. I’ve also taken this pattern out, but I haven’t been able to try it yet.. :)

      Thanks ellen. It’s a lovely pattern but i had to do a lot of adjusting on the sleeves. They where so wide and long like bell shape? They look better tapered.x
