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 . 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.
