East Trace Top

When the fabric does all the job, our only task to find the right pattern to represent it the best:-) It is exactly the case with this my top. The main thing was to arrange the paper pattern to emphasize the intricate and ornate print. I guess I’ve got a great result having in mind the sewing itself took just few hours:-))
My notes for the sewing are here

The jewellry was made by myself, too.

    Beautiful placement of design on your top! I think it looks best tucked in, as when tucked in it enhances the design and really draws the eye to view the design. Nicely made.

      Thank you, Rita, yes, I agree with you! Actually I am going to wear the top tucked but I liked the fabric so much that wanted to show it as more as possible so sometimes more relaxed variant, with jeans, for example, is possible :-)

    This fantastic print really makes the top! The turquoise border placement at neckline/shoulder it great!

      Thank you very much:-) It was a lucky idea indeed, I am glad I didn’t make other thing from the knits.

      Thank you very much, Mary:-) Those pictures were taken in Shaki Palace in Azerbaijan, a small country in Caucasus, when I was 17. The print on this modern knits reminded me that time and place :-)

      To get such a compliment from you is very valuable because I don’t know who can make tops better than you and Mary:-)
