Sweetheart top, to match a skirt – nod to the 50′s

in 1950s

For those who made suggestions for my top with sweetheart neckline. I made it…although in different fabric to what I originally intended. So it would match my ‘random retro skirt’.

I didn’t know if I should add a little bow or a pink button where the gather was….


I also ended up using a different zip to what I originally planned due to me buying it before I’d measured the seam. lol!

But in the end I had a wearable top. Although not fitted like I wanted as this was the first time I had lined a garment and I wasn’t confident I could change the fashion and lining fabric identically. Well at least if I have a big meal there’s plenty of room. Its nothing a belt can’t solve.

I've always hand sewn but never created garments until recently. I love the retro/vintage style. Its so much more stylish and flattering than modern stuff.

It’s a very cute top, I love gingham especially this colour! A cute vintage red button would look great!
