So the projects that I started on Sunday are complete plus a new top and pants! The top started off as a plain asymmetrical top but I wanted to have a bit of a flare so I doctored the pattern to reflect that; kind of like a semi circle skirt with a simple top except there is no joint at the waist! I slashed and spread the pattern without cutting through the edges. Sneaky huh! Once that was done I figured I should do something to the sleeves so I did a semi circle attached at the elbow, to give some more interest I added a border using the pants fabric! I quite liked it and then did the same treatment to the neckline.
The mock up turned out quite nice and can be used as a bathing suit cover up or a robe or over some leggings and tank top as someone pointed out to me!
