I saw this top in a catalog and thought, I wonder if I could create something like that for myself....
It seems everything I like is very creative in nature and this little top was no exception. I love some of these twist type tops, they are so feminine looking. This one sparked my creative juices and started them flowing again. So I pulled out two patterns to create mine and my guess is there's probably a pattern already created for this top out there somewhere too! Oh well, I need the "self-drafting" experience anyway! Here are the two patterns are used....Burda 7082 and Jalie 3245.
I used the pattern piece for the twist from the Burda pattern and the entire tee shirt pattern from the Jalie (the green & white one). I had to widen the tie piece some at the side seams to accommodate the width above and below the waist line. It was a little tricky with the pattern piece I used! But it worked out in the end. (At least I think so!)
I have another post coming right behind this one I am excited to post about too, so stay tuned!
Hope you all are having a great time sewing too and thanks so much for stopping by to read my blog!
