This sheer floaty top has a scooped round neck, and cut away, yoked back. The natural “drape ” of the lightweight fabric is essential – I used a variety of fabrics from cotton to polyester and chiffon. They are useful to throw over a bustier or a coordinating or contrasting tank top. Free sewing pattern included.
These are great for spring, especially in the bright colours reminiscent of the 80′s. Tangerine, purple, shocking pink, green, cobalt blue have made a comeback in silky, sheer and shiny fabrics.
The “Meryl” blouse from a $2 dated”shell” blouse.
I shop Thift stores a lot (called 2nd hand, or charity stores in some parts of the world) and noticed that there are a lot of the 80′s style “shell” blouses in these bright colours: round neck and cap sleeves.
They usually cost between $2-4, so I decided to see if they could be re-purposed into a mod top like the “Meryl”above.
