Hi everyone! The holidays are upon us and I know everyone must be CRAZY busy with the final preparations for your holiday celebrations! So I will make this really quick!
I was invited to my old company's Christmas party (last Friday) and wanted something new to wear. Since it was Casual Friday, I opted for jeans and just made a top. I had something in mind, so I used Simplicity 1063 as a start and added my changes to bring my thoughts to creation.
The only portion of the pattern I used was the front twist. All other pieces, sleeves, upper chest/neckline and back were all self drafted by me. This was such a quick sew...that I actually created it Friday morning prior to the 1:00pm Christmas party! Very very easy!
It was the perfect top for a casual office party and so very comfortable too. The black lace has a large amount of stretch and was gifted to me quite some time ago. The black fabric for the body of the top is a luxurious wool knit I purchased from Pennie Fabrics during the summer. I may make another and if so, I'll post how I did it if anyone is interested!
Thanks for stopping by and I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a safe and enjoyable Happy New Year!
Let's Go Sew!
