hey..finally a picture post! I'm both a terrible photographer, and lazy..so its a miracle I actually took pictures Smiley

I kinda dig the gibbous style, except I don't really love the flowy fairy feeling they've got (just not my style) so I made a top that is more restrained, with binding on the hem. It was a total experiment, lots of fun, and I plan on doing it again.




I am not so sure about that little ruffle I added, I wanted asymmetrical but I think its too much?

(please excuse my bra..I had no idea it was hanging out Smiley

Sorry the pics are not fantastic! I had to use the self timer on my camera. hopefully you are able to see what's going on.
detail shots:




detail of back

I am wearing my lady gaga disco bra (also made by me) underneath, because I think its awesome peeking out with it.

I had some issues with the zipper I installed not being long enough, so I tore the side out, threw another zipper in, and put on a bit of a panel to cover my mistake (whoops) not like you can tell, with the style! The next one I make will have a very long back zipper so I don't inadvertently trap myself in it again. Good times!

I have kind of got lazy and stopped sewing/crafting/creating, so I'm trying to push myself to start again. this was my first actual fun sewing project in a long long time.

I like Gibbous style too, but agree with you on the "flowy fairy feeling." I love your top!!!!  Cheesy My favorite gibbous style piece I have ever seen. So inspired! Thanks for sharing. Did you start with an existing top and modify it, or did you make your own top and then add on the fabric?

This is fantastic, I generally don't like gibbous style because of the fairy-floaty thing, but I REALLY like your top! You did a fantastic job, and I wouldn't change a thing on it!

aww thank you Smiley

I actually made a pattern from a camisole I have, and basically sewed the bejesus out of the front and back panel separately, then attached them together with a bit of topstitch detail to hide the seam.

I think in the future though I'm just going to sew right on top of a thrifted camisole or tank top, splitting one side open (for ease of sewing), adding a zipper and then going to town. just to save myself the trouble of fussing with that step. I just didn't happen to have any spare tops I could cannibalize when I decided to start the project

I was just thinking of doing this with a long black satin dress I saved from a neighbor.
The texture you created looks fantastic. Thanks for sharing! I definitely will try this instead of passing the dress to goodwill Smiley
Cheers lovely!

This is awesome-lovely, especially with the gaga-bra! It both coordinates and contrasts with it, yay!
