Retro wrap top

August 22, 2014

This is a bit of an odd project: a 1950’s style jersey wrap top, made using a modern tutorial inspired by a ¬†vintage pattern illustration.

1voorI found the tutorial here. No sloper needed. It says the design is for ‘up to’ an Australian size 12. I don’t really know what that is, probably the same as a British one… In which case I’m a little smaller. And I quite like the fit of the top. It’s the only waist length desing I’ve ever tried which stays in place when you sit down!

1Avoor2According to the illustration, you can also wear this top back to front. That doesn’t really work. It’s a bit uncomfortable and on me, there is extra length in the ehh closed side. That’s nice and practical when it’s at the back. At the front it just looks odd.

Anyway… As usual, you can read more about this top on my blog¬†and if you want to make your own, follow the link above.
