G'N R Top Band tee reconstruction Longtop

Well, what you see… :) A longtop with an extra bust part made out of the scratch.
Take a band-tee (or any other tee or fabric) for the front part, for the back part some fabric you like, same for the double-layered hem line.

It takes lots of time, but i’s a very classic pattern you can do millions of variations with it : attaching lace trim, studs, bows, whatever.
The style depends on the materials you use.

If you use studs for the strechy bust part, don’t forget to double layer the studded part with a non-stretchy material (some old jeans for example) otherwise the studs will fall off.

Material Notes

wet look spandex, jersey, GNR-tee,studs and so on




Spring, Summer, Fall
Garment Type

    THX everybody ! It’s a very simple longtop:(hope you understand what I mean,my english isn’t very good)

    first you create the front part (tee + 2 bust parts +middle part, just try it, not very hard to do it out of the scratch), sew it together,then the back part => sewing, then add lace trim around the neckline & add a double layered hemline, then add grommet tape along the side seams, use the same tape for the neckholder.

    Studs are always the last step when everything else is done !
