HolidayPepper's (Afternoon) Tea Top

Added Mar 14, 2009

Greensboro, Nort...






I fell in love with this pattern as soon as I saw it! Though I’m not the same size as the original pattern, I added a little extra room as I cut out the pieces and that seemed to work out well. The instructions were clear and very easy to follow. I’d like to make a little bolero jacket/shrug to go with it, so if anyone has any patterns they think would go with this top, please pass them along!

Material Notes

Black and silver silk brocade. Silver satin for ruffle. Zipper.





IchiGoGirl for creating an awesome pattern!

    Very nice execution… A bolero really would finish off the look, especially in the same material and with a ruffle trim.

    I want to use this pattern to make something more formal, like your top, but could you help me with the bust? I cant figure it out at all.
