Oriental Fans Top
I made this as a toile for a layered dress that I was making (still not finished, probably won't be, but that's a story for another day!) and wanted to check the fit of. It's a simple, dartless top, which I made no adjustment to and just followed the instructions throughout.
It came out nice! Not sure that it's the most flattering thing I've ever worn, but I will wear it, and I love the fabric. It's a very soft, light cotton lawn that I purchased from Minerva Crafts last year. I did not know what I was going to do with it, so when this top came along it was a nice wee stash buster as well. Not that I have much of a stash to bust...!
I bought a metre of the fabric, so the top cost me £13.99 in all, which is not too bad!
Overall I like it. It's relaxed, cool, and easy to wear. Nice simple top that I also enjoyed to make.
