A pattern laying dormant produces a gorgeous top!February 08, 2011
I bought this fabric a while back from Spotlight. I was surprised how 'unspotlightish' it looked! I also bought the blue stripe for the pants and envisaged a matching little outfit. I made the pants a while ago and stole some of the red for a pocket on the back. I was looking through my old patterns and found this sweet little cross over top which suits the fabric really well. The top took me no more than 45 minutes to make - will definitely have to make some more. Little effort for maximum effect! That's what I like.
