I designed and started making this top over two years ago! After carefully painting the fringe by hand I realised that there was no way that my sewing machine was going to tackle the chiffon bodice fabric that I had chosen. Now that I have a wonderful new machine I have been able to sew the chiffon and finally finish this top.

The fringe trim that I used was synthetic so I couldn't use the dip dye method that I had originally planned. Instead, I mixed different concentrations of blue fabric paint and carefully painted each strand of fringe! I then realised that my sewing machine was not going to sew the chiffon and so I had to leave this project for a while. I recently got a new machine and this top was still on my mind so I finally finished it. I drafted the pattern myself from my own custom sized block. After attaching the fringe to the neckline I covered the edge with bias binding and inserted a navy metal zip in the back. I used tiny french seams for the darts and side seams and a pin hem (tutorial here: http://www.katywarland.com/#!tutorials-pinhem/cbry).

Oh wow, this is beautiful! I can't imagine how long it must have taken to paint all that fringe  Shocked It turned out fantastically, though!
