Another odd top

August 25, 2014

The wrap top I posted last week didn’t come alone. After that, I tried another modern tutorial for a retro design. The wrap top had only one pattern piece, this top is even more simple: a rectangle of fabric, two seams, that’s it.

I made this red one first but wasn’t happy with the fit. It looks fine in the picture but it seemed like there wasn’t enough fabric at the lower edge to wrap it properly. It makes a nice shrug though.
