Here is my newest design inspired by the victorian/edwardian periods with a modern twist. I absolutely love how this top turned out and can't wait to make another.





C&C Welcome.

That is so cute!!!!! I love how it looks like a bolero on top. And the hole in it is a really fun idea for playing with layers. Awesome stuff Cheesy

Edit - So I was looking at the pictures again and more closely, because I love this top so much, and I can't help but wonder where you got the fabric? At first I thought it was just a grungy sort of stripey look, but now I see that the gaps in the stripes are actually lightning bolts and it's so interesting!!!

Oh wow! How lovely! I wish I could wear something like that. Sadly my linebacker shoulders would not agree with such a style.

Freaking fantastic....and I am so clicking "this rocks"!

I like the shapes a lot but I feel the pattern of the fabric might be fighting the design a bit.  I'd like to see this design in a solid color fabric or less distracting pattern.  Smiley

I love the fabric you used, where did you get it? And was this your own pattern? I adore the frills along the neck and the peek a boo hole on the bottom front!

Thanks Everyone. It isn't that hard of a top to make, just takes a few hours. I can put up a tutorial if any one would like. The fabric I found at Joann's in the reduced section. I saw it and just had to buy it. I fell in love with the grungy looking stripes with the lightning bolts in between.

I was thinking about trying a solid or even a floral. I have some nice floral fabric laying around that I was thinking about using.
