my malissa shirt

Added Mar 1, 2008

Dresden, Germany






I found this very light knit fabric when my fabric shop had a sale. It was so cheap that I must bought it ;)!

At first I had no idea what I can do with it. But then I thought it would be possible to make a shirt from the malissa dress. I add a belt and loops for the belt. I can make a how to for it, when someone is interested.

I´m not really confident about it, but my boyfriend like it. I think it´s ok.

    i don’t like the malissa pattern, but i surely like your top! i like especially the waistband you added and it’s placing, it really looks good as an empire-like top. i could think of your version for myself a bit longer. i also like the sheer fabric you used a lot.

    oh wow, thank you all for your nice comments :) ! I didn´t expected this!

    The collar looks like it would be different, but it´s the same as the original. I think the fabric is the reason for this. (it was not fun to sew :/)

    It was difficult for me, cause I never work with such a fabric before.

    I will upload the how to in the next days!

    (and a picture from the collar)

    I’ll agree with all the statements of liking it much better as a shirt than as a dress. I also think it looks great with the more sheer fabric— it’s a good layering top.

    I wasn’t a huge fan of this dress but I love it as a top. The fabric is perfect for it and it really suits your figure. A how to would be great and please let us know what alterations you made to the original pattern. The collar looks like it might be slightly different?

    I didn’t especially like the Malissa pattern as a dress, but love what you have done with it. All of your creations are wonderful!

    I think its gorgeous! The lightweight fabric really makes it very delicate—what a great fabric find! :) Bravo!!
