as the days grow warmer and school draws to a close, i felt like it was time to update my wardrobe with some summer pieces! i’ve been meaning to use my scraps from a thrifted dress that i turned into a top for something, because the fabric is so lovely. i’m really into the color and the lightweight feel – it’s a tad slippery to sew with, but i think the end result is worth it.
i modified a tutorial by the essentials club to draft my own top. i didn’t add darts because i have a small bust and figured i could get away with it, and i was also trying to squeeze the top out of minimal fabric. my favourite features are the thin straps and the french seams on the inside! definitely going to be getting a lot of wear this summer 🙂
- pattern: self-drafted
- fabric: leftovers from a thrifted dress
- notes: straps are a little loose, and hem is a tad short – mostly due to fabric restrictions though!
