I made this from my leftover Valori Wells voile- there is still enough to make a teeny skirt for a teeny person! I had not intended for there to be a crossover front, but I didn't have enough fabric to make the top above the empire waist out of one piece. I think that the crossover worked out well, though, so I'm happy. The fabric has some stretch even though it's a woven and I chose not to use a zipper, so it's a little tight to get on and off! Any looser and it would have hung off my back funny, so that was the trade-off. My plan is to find some ribbon or to make a ribbon from the fabric for the tie at the neck. White doesn't quite go. I also plan to add some clear seed beads to make this top a little dressier. You can see from the side view that the back hangs down a little- but not nearly as much as it did at first.
I don't plan to wear this top with work trousers, but that's what I was wearing at the time.
Janda and I were so busy with mad lots of yardwork over vacation that I didn't get anywhere on my other projects. Hopefully soon... I have a birthday party this weekend and I'd like to wear one of those dresses!
