ahhh I'm so freakin excited, I've finally made my first piece of clothing that I'd wear out of my house!!!  I've been a LONG time lurker here (I'm talking over a year) but I never usually post my projects cause I feel like everyone else's are so much nicer! But I'm seriously so proud of this top, and I couldn't wait to post it haha. I mean its not perfect, but hell its amazing compared to my other projects. SOOO here it is!



mirror shot.  trying to show the pleats on either side


here are the gold flowers up close, i made them with ribbon. oh and the top is lined with antique lace from my grandma.


i think this one is a little blurry but shows the pleats well. kinda.


me enjoying my new top!! haha.  oh and i guess it shows my bra with a camera flash, any suggestions on what to line it with to stop that?

So yea, it was a pretty easy top to make, the lace was kind of a bitch to do but i figured it out then.  Any comments or suggestions or criticism is always appreciated!!  Grin

It looks fantastic.

You can always double-face it with more of the brown fabric you used.

That's a great colour combo!  It really suits you too.  My 2c on the flash - are you likely to wear it anywhere that you'll be having your photo taken?  Maybe just wear a black bra?  Or as cheera said, you could put another layer of the brown fabric underneath the bust area.

Great job though.

Great choice on the combo of brown, gold, and cream! It looks soo cute, I love it!

Oh yes, I think a black bra would solve everything.

aww thanks everyone for you compliment. it really means a lot to me! I'm glad everyone seems to like it

i actually used a really stretchy fabric, so I didn't need a zipper.  But I'm planning on trying this again with other fabric, probably cotton, so I'll have to use a zipper then!

I think I might line it if I'm ever feeling like I need to do something, but for now, ha I'm too lazy. You're right,  I don't expect pictures to be taken of me anytime sooN!

I'm such a nerd, I wore this shirt all day today  Cheesy
