Okay, so the "Beam me up, Scotty!" bears no relevance at all to this post - I just couldn't think of a title, heh heh.

Anyway, I was just browsing through the french connection website when I saw these crazy bright tunic tops:

And I thought, heh, I have even crazier brighter fabric in my cupboard. So, I put this together:


(yes my room is a tip)







The sides of the banding don't quite match up and the neckline has been messed up a bit (due to a mixture of my own stupidity and my sewing machine deciding to have a nervous breakdown) and the colour really doesn't work with my skin tone but who cares! It's bright and summer's coming!

Is that a rolled hem at the bottom?  Very, very cute!! I'm wondering how a top like that would look on busty ol' me... Smiley

That's great! I love the colors. Wish I had some fabric like that in my cupboard. What is the back like? Is it a straight back or racer?

Thanks for the lovely comments

Not a rolled hem, just a normal one. I think this kind of top would actually look nicer on a more busty girl.

Straight. Although now you mention it it would have probably looked better racer back. Oh well, next time!

LOVE.  Who cares about crooked stuff?  Not noticeable.  YOU made it, and if I were you, I'd wear it every day.  Hopefully those bright colors will bring on the warm weather.
