Top with Chiffon

Added Apr 18, 2014

Nedre Vats, Norway






This top is based on a pattern from Diana 40.2011. I have used a combination of chiffon and jersey. For the front part I had to use two layers since the chiffon is transparent and I found some cotton voile in my stash. The jersey is a little shiny and reminds a bit about sports stretch. At the neckline is a tunnel with rubberband. The top is very comfy to wear, and I’m ready for Summer ☼

Material Notes

Chiffon, jersey and cotton voile.

    It is a very romantic top. I’m sure who sees you, at once wants to suggest a walk under the trees among spring flowers… Very nice and so fresh! And you look lovely:-)
