Nautical Cold Shoulder Top

Added Apr 5, 2017

This is my finished 03/2017 Mash Up project where I sewed our Embroidered Cold Shoulder Blouse pattern. The only main pattern alteration I did was alter the front bodice hemline.

I love the end result of this top and want to make another version but lengthen the hemline so it is a dress. I do want to take out some of the fullness though to make less gathers for a sleeker silhouette. But I love all the fullness for the top! For the back closure I went with two large gold statement buttons with elastic loops.

I used this double gauze fabric so my top is nice and breezy. Then for the bands I used some scrap yellow stretch brocade for a pop of color.

    It’s gorgeous meg. I love your fabric choice and the pop of colour at the band’s is eye-catching. I have my version cut out ready to go xx
