Yay! So i have just finished this draped peachy top. The fabric is made from peachy stretchy mesh and peachy t-shirt fabric underneath. It took for-ever! Because of the hand stitching and pleating. I had to sew most of it by hand (hems) and now my fingers have specks of scabs on them...but I think it was worth it!  Grin It was inspired by a swimming costume I found in a magazine a while back, but that was grey and had a REAL big price tag..outta my price range anyway!

The front:

The Back:

With a Belt:

On my Hanger:

I can't decide: with a belt or without? And with jeans or a skirt? I suppose the skirt would have to be a pencil skirt but then I have no high heals...gah, the pains of being a girl!  Cheesy Jeans it is then!

that is very pretty! I love how you did the hem on it. I think it's a very versatile top and youcould wear it any way you wanted to.

Hey, that's great!  It looks like you could do the 'braided shirt' http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=115461.0 thing to the top of the collar!  Is that what that is, or did you sew it on?

It really looks great!

I hate to be a joykill, but to be honest, I don't think it's very flattering on you.  It's very pretty and I LOVE it (braids, pleats, AND Greek goddess-like? <3), don't get me wrong.  But I don't think it really suits your body type.
