Elizabethan Top

Wool + lace top with asymmetry hem line.
It was fun to work! Wool is my favorite material;)

To make this pattern, I used my dress form a lot. Usually I start making pattern on the table, but I just used a block and pin it on the dress form, and drew lines on the paper, then cut it. I highly recommend to have a dress form if you like to make a pattern by yourself. It will surprisingly change your process of dress making!!! ………read whole story at my blog. http://crochetie.blogspot.com/2011/01/elizabethan-top.html

    Just wow! It’s just amazing! The wool goes perfectly with the lace and the asymetrical style makes it really interesting to look at! :)

      Hope Santa will find you soon;) In my opinion, there is no any reason to wait for it. I should have gotten it a lot earlier as it was THAT useful!!

      Wasn’t sure if it will come out well at the beginning, but I guess it was fine:) Thank you!

    Oh wow. I’m really digging this! But I’m really interested in the pants. Is there a pattern?

      Thanks, but I purchased the pants. It’s from theory.

    Love it! The play with texture is great too. Plus I’m a fan of asymmetrical designs.
