Addictive Day-To-Night Drape Top pattern

I have finished my first top Day-To-Night Drape Top (pattern by MariaDenmark). It is exactly as Kim-ing said – simply, easy to make pattern, ready within few hours. And it looks good and suits great. I will take some photos to show you but first I will make another one Knipogende emoticon. Yes, yes, … addictive pattern.

Both tops are/will be made from stretch lycra jersey with great drape – wonderful for this type of design.

The one I have already finished is made of fabric with this colourful – art deco like – pattern…

The next one – already cut off the fabric – will be dark blue (in reality it is really nice dart blue colour).

I still have two jersey fabrics which are a little thicker. I am thinking of making a top with the same neckline however I would like to have long sleeves.

So… I have checked patterns I have … hmmm…. I started to draw the patterns, modify patterns – I have no patience anymore. In the end I have checked Vogue patterns website. They have sale and I was wondering if there is something interesting.

And of course I have found – even more then I needed…

I have picked up three patterns with different front and collar finishing. They all can be made with short sleeves or sleeveless.

I think I will be able to pick up something for these two fabrics.

I will probably make two different tops – and check patterns at the same time.




Now back to my skirt where I still have to attach lining and make hem.

    1. Just do it – I am glad Kim-ing convinced me – you will not regret it. I will post photos soon… it is nice sunny day for taking photos – only still too cold for taking photos outside 🙂

  1. I love the day to night top. In fact I’m wearing the dress I created out of it right now! If you have Maria’s tshirt pattern those sleeves fit the day to night top!

    1. Well… I have enough patterns which probably have a sleeve I could use, I could draft a sleeve myself but— I am too tired (lazy) to do this seeing so many patterns around I could use. So probably I will buy the tshirt pattern in the end 😉 – thanks for the tip!
