This top was inspired by an Ella Moss tee I saw here on late afternoon. I really loved the look of the lace over the shoulders. Mine is no where near as lovely as the original but I had a good go and I’ve already worn it more than once. It was pretty simple to make. I used the same t-shirt pattern that I made and used here, sewed it all up in a black cotton jersey then added strips of lace over the shoulders and cut away the fabric from underneath. The lace comes from the sleeve of the lace shirt I bought from a charity shop.

      Thanks for your comment. I didn’t make the skirt. I bought it from a charity shop. I’ve explained how I made the top in the description.

    Smashing. The dip in the back neck is very femine.

    I have a cream top and a black top like this that I love to wear. They’re wonderfully flexible. Yours is gorgeous and I love the up-cycled lace idea.

    I love this top! And it looks really nice with that cute little grey skirt.
