I love it! Especially the yellow and green shades!
And here is the original Saint Laurent dress.
Doesn't it just make you drool?
I used Vogue 8792 as my starting point for my top , made a copy and then proceeded to draw the design on it.For all the details , please visit Diana's Sewing Lessons.
The fabric is a stable cotton knit. I made it to skim over the body rather than fitted because as I've mentioned before, that's how I prefer to wear my clothes.
I had planned on adding the neck and armhole bands to my top in black but, I ended up not liking the way that looked so I left them out.That left the neckline and armholes a little too open. Next time I would use more of a boat neck for the neckline.
I used facings which I carefully slip stitched to the garment so they would stay put and the stitching is almost invisible.
At the back I added a little extra something .just because,which I think is cute.
I like it with black....
and I like it with white.
What do you think ?
For fall, I'd like to copy the original in tan, black and beige, but we'll see.
Hope you found time to sew this weekend !
