Mod Faces Print Top

Hi everyone! It’s been a minute. I had an exhibition with many of my dresses at a store in Chicago (my first solo show!) and overall just working on new projects.

I designed, made, and wore this top to the opening of my dress exhibition!

I whipped this baby up in about 3 hours, pattern and everything! It was a really simple pattern to make: just a princess line with added flare at the bottom from waistline to hem. You get a semi-peplum-ish effect, but not as drastic.

Back. This fabric is a one-way stretch knit I bought on Etsy. It’s from the 60s or 70s. It’s my favorite!

Inside finished off with my serger.

It’s a great little top!
