Hi!
I found this fabric in the sales-pile once, and I absolutely loved it. It would be a bit too messy to make an entire top out of though, so I mixed it with some plain white fabric. It was a bit see-through, so There's a second layer of white fabric underneath. The back is all white. I made the pattern.



---Edit---
Thanks for all the credit! Cheesy
Making the pattern wasn't that hard at all, I just drew a plain top on a piece of paper, then got out a ruler and drew some lines across it. I decided what to make which colour and cut apart at the lines. I added seam allowance when transferring the pattern to the fabric. I sewed the front (the stripes) together first, and then added the extra layer and the back just like with any top. I might make a real tutorial if I have time.
Oh, and I found the fabric in the scrap-box at my local fabric store, so it was cheap too! Grin

Mixing in the white was a good idea--it looks like cool fabric, and I probably would wear it as a shirt by itself, but the diagonals really add a lot. And great job with the pattern!

that's a really good top, not somethign you'd usually see, but it came out looking so good.  I wish I could make up patterns like that, I think I'd confuse myself to no end if I tried
