A few months back, my friend made some long shirts from this colorful fabric.. All bright colors in one place! I fell in love with this print and went straight to the fabric store to look for it.. Sadly, it was no longer available and another idea went through my mind.. I asked my friend if she has leftover fabric, just a scrap, so I could make a crop top with it.. She saved me one scrap, and it was the perfect one, with horseman at the center (thanks greka!!)..

Although I had another idea, I picked pattern for asymmetric crop top #103 from Burda 03/2016.. I had enough colorful fabric to cut the front piece.. For back I used some leftover black rayon I had in my stash.. I like how rayon drapes at the back.. Sleeves I left out because I think it looks better without them, than with short black ones..

Shorts are also made by me.. This pattern I used a lot before (pattern #111 from Burda 10/2010).. This time I made it from black cotton fabric with a bit of stretch.. For the first time I made it in a solid color fabric.. That’s why I finished it with scalloped hemline to make it interesting..

    I love this pattern for the top and the fabric you have used is beautiful, it looks really cool without the sleeves you’ve inspired me to make another one of these tops but sleeveless, cute shorts too :-)
