My favourite black top

Added Nov 24, 2008

Stockholm, Sweden






This must be my most frequently worn piece of clotning ever (except for my favourite jeans and my thick cardigan which is the only thing that can keep me warm in winter).
I made it when I needed something new to wear when going out clubbing/partying and had found my great grandmother’s little bag of treasures in my grandmothers drawers. In it were cut off pieces of sequined/beaded material that I just HAD to use!
One found it’s new life on this top. It became a diffrent life than the last one though, all the sequins melted and disappeared the first time I washed the top, but I think I like it as much without the sequins…
It closes with little hooks (?) that came on a strip of fabric, I think they’re made for underwear. It was the most easy kind of closure possible to sew in, and I like the effect it makes, it looks a bit old fashioned.
I made the pattern from my own (personal) basic fitted pattern.

Material Notes

Viscose or rayon (really, really cheap…)





Grandma’s drawers

      Mmmm… I love hook and eye-tape. Nowadays it usually only comes in creepy synthetic variteties, but keep your eyes open, some fabric/notion-stores still sell the real stuff, in high quality cotton. I always look for it when I do my fabric shopping :-)
