3 Tops :: Part3

The last top. View D of the Simplicity pattern. Made from a beautiful viole that my girlfriend bought from a recycle fabric shop in Mornington, Victoria. It has a little silk in it and sits so beautifully.

I cut the sleeves in a little more than the original pattern and used the same piece front and back. I didn't hem the top as the fabric already had a lovely selvedge on it.

The top isn't as sheer as the photos show. I just loved the photos with the light shining through, it emphasises the pattern.

Oooohh, this fabric is so lovely! It looks fabulous with the sun shining through it. Love the sweet and simple design too, it really shows off the fabric. :)
