This is Charly in her high low top she designed. I self drafted it. The back was supposed to be a bit longer, but she used most of the fabric in December on her duster and pants.
I created a waistline casing and added 1/2 inch elastic and used 1/2 inch bias binding to finish it. This was a "Make it Work" top! I was quite pleased with this top, but more importantly, so was she!
The big sister wearing a high low top that she requested. Her idea came from a high low top I'd made for her Mom last summer. I surprised her by finding this vibrant print in her favorite colors - yellow and purple!
She thought I was going to make it from fabric from my stash (which would not have been those colors), but since I hadn't sewn for her in quite a while, I wanted it to be special. She was quite surprised and loves it!
Playing around with the pattern placement (even on the sleeves) was fun! The Peplums were made from drafted donut style circles. I added an invisible zipper in the back. I love the outcome!
