Hi you crafty bunch!
Next up in the covid isolation fabric stash sewathon!!
Finished making this top last weekend, just before I buggered up my back, argh! Had to take a few days off of sewing and still recovering, but I’m glad to say I’ve already started on my next 2 sews
So here it is anyways! I’ve had this fabric for years and thought this would be the perfect pattern for it, it’s dbp so it’s come out lovely and soft and floaty for summer
I used black velvet ribbon for the feature straps, though I will say that in hindsight I think making your own straps (as the pattern calls for) or using a stretch ribbon or elastic would have worked better, but I still think it looks lovely!
Sorry about the obvious bra straps, I did turn the lining into a shelf bra (to help support ma hugey bust) by making it a bit longer and adding wide elastic, but I still can’t get away with going bra-less even with a shelf bra!
I swear Mr Loops likes to take as many pictures as possible just so he can get me making weird faces…
