Great thanks!  I've been measuring the pattern pieces and they don't seem like they will match up.  I may just have to bite the bullet and try a muslin or two.   Grin

This sounds very intriguing...

I have made 2 of these tops from the sew simple magazine. The 1st one was from a vintage indian beadspread, and the 2nd one from quilters type cottons. I am a 44 d and the large size was to big.

Your tops are beautiful!

Wow dyabolica  I love your tops! I love all the hippy stuff but in the shops they never fit cos the boob section is always too small so id love to try and make something like this! Are these tops easy to make? Ive just been given an old sewing machine and have never used one before! Also, where did you get your patterns from - i cant fnd them on the website.

It looks pretty simple although I still haven't gotten spare time to try one (plus it got cold again, which killed my motivation for making summer clothes LOL!).  The pattern is here: 

You have click on the individual PDFs for each pattern piece (http://www.sewnews.com/sewsimple/pdf/a.pdf through /e.pdf and /strap.pdf). 

The bad thing is that there are no directions (or I haven't found them anyway!) for assembling the top.  If you need directions, I'm sure someone here can help though.   Smiley 

I have the opposite bust issue so I'm not sure what to tell you in that regard...  Maybe ask on the Curvacious Crafters board for suggestions?  I would think you'd want to make sure when you cut the top section of the bodice that it's both wide enough to go around your bust and also high enough to fit the curve of your bust.  That might entail making darts so it looks a little more shapely but that's just a guess on my part.  Like I said, it doesn't seem like all the parts are going to fit evenly but after scrutinizing the photos, I think there's a small flap of fabric on the skirty part that sticks out farther than the busty part. Wink   Again, I'd make sure the skirty part is wide enough to go around your chest/back w/o showing any more skin that you're comfortable with before cutting.

I was thinking about making these pants, which are very hippie.


But I am also really busy and my boyfriend would probably kill me if I started another project  Roll Eyes

I see this thread has been dead for quite awhile BUT I thought since spring is coming, I wanted to make some new clothes! I am going to make an apron top and a drawstring skirt.

Apron top instructions:

Drawstring skirt instructions:

I will probably use elastic in my skirt instead of a drawstring.

Anybody want to join me?
