Summer Top

New postby susandf on Thu May 24, 2012 7:24 pm

The Stash included a small (3/4 yard) piece of sheer yellow print that had wanted to transform into a summer top for a number of years, but most patterns required more fabric.

So it lingered, unfulfilled, in The Stash until I came across New Look 6937.

Great top! And how nice that you were finally able to find a pattern to work with your fabric!

My supervisor was at work in a beautiful RTW top tonight and the design was very similar to the pattern design that you used. Great job and very well suited to you figure and for the season.
