I made this top about a year ago. I used a pattern from Suuri Käsityölehti -magazine, but made a more simple version. I left out lining and added straps.
My granny gave me the fabric. It was white, so I dyed it before I could use it. I tried to dye it black, but apparently there are some artificial fibres used in the fabric so it turned out grey. I think the fabric is now nicer than it would be if it were completely black.
I have also made the black skirt I'm wearing. It's a circle skirt, made with the tutorial I found on Craftster.


The top.
