Hope you are doing well! I wanted to share with you another black top I made last month. This is a top that was rubbed off from a handmade top that was rubbed off from a ready to wear top I found at Marshalls like a million years ago. So, therefore, this is a 3rd generation top!
Before we jump into looking at this DIY, let me show you the original and the 1st knockoff:
Here is the original. These pics are in beautiful Paris 🙂
Here is the 1st ruboff. I made this after the 1st one started showing signs of wear. You can read more about this DIY HERE
Then I recently made this one as the 2nd one started showing signs of wear.
I paired it with the same red skirt I previously wore HERE.
I’ll be wearing this top all winter with jeans. I hate being cold, so I had to sew up another one. For a more dramatic effect, I will be lengthening the pattern piece that makes the “cowl drape”. You could even make is wider at the top for a more dramatic effect. That would actually be really cute on a sweater. Maybe I will make a sweater this year.
Hope you are well and enjoying the change in season. We are hitting the pumpkin patch with the kiddos today and after that, I am going to stay in and rest! Off to the fabric store tomorrow.
I have so much catching up to do on the blog. Seems like I am always sewing faster than I can blog! I have four looks to catch up on, including this one, so be on the lookout for more looks in the next few weeks!
