Hi Beauties,

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,Ā  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 šŸ™‚

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.Ā I hate being cold, so I had to sew up another one. For a more dramatic effect, I will be lengtheningĀ the pattern pieceĀ that makes the “cowl drape”.Ā  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!

XOXO
