Top with Asymmetric Gathering.

Added Aug 17, 2014

Nedre Vats, Norway






I had some left of this lovely knitted net-jersey and decided to try this pattern #124 Burda 06/2008. I like the top because it looks so unique with the asymmetric gathering and thought it would be nice of this light fabric. I cut double layers of the front parts, so I could use it without a top underneath. For the back part and sleeves it’s transparent, but that’s ok. I think I was lucky how I cut ;) Since I used double layers in front, it was easy to make the V-neck. I have used twin needle for the seam at the hem and end of the sleeves. I have made a dress of this fabric earlier :)

    Very sexy… I’m not sure if it is you embellish the outfit or it is the outfit that is very lucky to embellish you:-)
