I made this top using a rtw off shoulder top as a guide. The flower is made of circles of fabric melted at the edges with a candle. The fridges have a spiral shape. I made these spirals using fabric circles which I cut continuously from the perimeter to the center.

Sexy!  The color blocking is very nice and flattering, too! having the flower and fringe on one side really is a nice detail...

I think many of us are jealous of how many cute clothes you have made! Cheesy

Hi alwaysinmyroom! You are always so sweet and kind! I have seen so many marvelous things in this site, every time I need to learn something I search here. The idea of the colorblocking was from here, because I had gained some weight and the top didn't fit me anymore. First it was plain green:)))
Maybe I should have posted as reconstructed Undecided

I love the shape of the neckline, and your ingenuity with the colourblocking to make it work.
