Last fall, I made this dress by combining the sleeves, armhole and neckline of Today's Fit V1109 and the body of Burda 5522 , both OOP.
I've gotten compliments every time I've worn it and I thought I'd use the same concept and make a tunic length top.
I cut the band using lengthwise stripes for contrast.
The contrast is totally lost on the sleeves and in retrospect, a plain white band would have made a bolder statement but I do so love these sleeves with their pleats on either side of the band.
BTW, the fabric is cotton lycra and very drapey.
I had the top on my dress form when my DGD, Jessica came to visit and she really liked it. I had her try it on with the intention of making her one but when I saw her in it, I just had to let her have it because it looked so great on her. I ended up giving her my white ankle jeans to wear with it too.
Jessie also went home with the yellow Sandra Betzina top from this outfit because it was too tight to be attractive on me and looked amazing on her but I forgot to snap a pic.
Pretty cool when a Nana and a Grand-daughter can share clothes, don't you think!
I have lots more to show you so please come visit me again and Happy Sewing from
