Livingston, New ...






A creation from Sewalong- Ellinor 8516 but I didn’t use Ellinor, I used free pattern from
Burdamode http://www.burdafashion.com/en/DOWNLOAD/Free/1333669-1413206-1333668.html

Both of them have same eliments, the difference is sleeve.

My inspiration came from…

Material Notes

Stretch cotton, funny color and print but it
was so inexpensive, good for experiment.

    It has two strings from front & sides to tie on the back. I need to sew invisible snaps under the arms too. I went to the shops and looked for orange color tops, surprisely I found quite a fews, give be a little bit confident.

    You should definitely try wearing it. It’s so cute and appropriate for spring and summer! The color is refreshing! My only concern would be making sure it stayed fastened properly since it is all one piece. Is there anything but the front buckle holding it together?

    Thank you so much! It looks very odd and I don’t know if I will wear it but it is fun to look at.

    Cool. I love the white piping and belt buckle. These details make your top very original.

    That’s great again! Looks to me like you took elements from both patterns but made your very own thing. I really like how it turned out.

    Looks great! I ones saw a dress that looked a bit similar so I decided to make a top like it, but I didn’t have a pattern so it’s a top I’m still working on because I can’t make it fit well. Now that I have seen yours, gives me the courage to go on with mine ;)
