A lace top is a great way to make your outfit more romantic. I have been looking for the perfect top all summer, but have not found it, so I decided that I would make one myself.
My sister gave me the idea to copy one of her H&M tops. The top was made out of one big square and a hole in the neck line. I bought an old lace curtain on a Flea Market during my holiday that will be perfect for a lace top.
I started with cutting the fabric with the old H&M top as pattern. If you do not have an top to trace, simply make a big square. Make the square a little wider then your measurements so the top is a bit loose.
After cutting I overlocked the side seams and the shoulder seam together. Then I overlocked the edges around the arms and the edges around the neck line.
Then out to enjoy the sun!
Sorry for my absent from the blog recently. I blame the good weather and lazy days of summer. 😉
But now I am back sewing and blogging.
I hope everyone is enjoying themselves like this two pigs who I meet in Kragerø.
Happy Summer/ God sommer!
Moods of Norway have a lovely summer sweater this season, this is my inspiration for this sweater. The sweater has small cotton flowers on it, easy to make yourself. I used an old white cotton sweater from H&M.
For the flowers I used yellow and light blue cotton. The flowers was made with normal stitching.
I made about four flowers, maybe I will make more later. It took 1 football game to make, easy and fast update!
