Here are my newest versions of V1382, an Anne Klein dress that I cut as a top, and March’s Miss Bossy Patterns Winner for The Monthly Stitch! I’ll be posting over there soon with all of March’s makes! You can read more about the construction of my first version here! I love the look of these two tops, the colorblocked version is in an orange and peach cotton and the triangle print version is an organic cotton voile, both from Finch Sewing Studio that I bought on Etsy. I was planning on colorblocking the triangle top as well but the other fabric was backordered so I decided to go ahead and make the top in one fabric with the fabric flipped on the top bodice to add some interest. I’m so happy I did- This is my favorite top to wear, plus it goes with almost everything in my wardrobe!
Here are the fabrics I used:
For the colorblocked version I used these two colorways. After making the top the orange/red was just too bright and jarring against my skin so I lightened it naturally using hydrogen peroxide and lemon juice in the washing machine. So happy with the color now!
