I know this skull & roses cotton fabric is everywhere. I don't care; I love it. I had a fairly small piece, so I decided to make a top of it to wear out for my birthday last month.
I used the same muslin I made from the Dragon Dress tutorial, only I lengthened the midriff section and back, and flared them out a little to go over my hips, and eliminated the skirt, of course.
The whole thing is lined (with red) and there's a zipper down the back. One other modification to the tutorial: instead of pleating the bust, I gathered it. It's a nice variation, I think.
Thanks for looking!
