Peter Max-ish Fabric Top

Hey all!

I just finished making this top which what I assume is some late 60s fabric. It has a Peter Max-ish feel to the illustration and the selvedge edge was printed with “Rosewood Fabrics Inc”. I bought it when a vintage store in Wicker Park was going out of business back in the spring and it was worth every penny as it is soooo soft!

I used patterns I had made last April for the Judy dress which was my 1st post on We Sew Retro. The dress has a tent/trapeze shape and thisis just shortened for a slight over-sized look.

I also have a few tips on sewing the placket perfectly as I did on this top (collar stand on the other hand was a very slight struggle, but I got it now). I think I’ll be making many more tops with a placket! It’s a nice little detail.

OMG Cute! I love the retro fabric. It’s really loud, but the style you chose sort of restrains it a bit. Love it!
