Satin Tops

Added May 12, 2016

Nedre Vats, Norway






I was digging in my stash and found these small pieces of satin fabric and thought it would be great for tops. I had to combine the animal print fabric with black chiffon, but it was a nice challenge.. I have made another of this top before.

I can’t help it, but I just love the pattern for the top with scarf from Burda 02/2008, even if I just made another one
It’s made of satin wich I had left from my evening-dress

Welcome summer-time ;-)

Material Notes

Satin and chiffon.




Spring, Summer

    Beautiful – as always! What a great idea to combine the black fabric too. I found a scarf but not sure it will stretch to a full top – but it might if I add another piece of satin to it!

      Thanks Lindsay! I think it’s very nice to combine a scarf on the back side and have a single color in front :)
