just another quick sewing project, resulting in an odd piece–but i love it!
it was meant to be a cheap copy of this COS circle top, though of course since i used cotton jersey (for the top part) instead of silk/viscose jersey, the result is not quite like what the original looks like. 😀
see the difference? well… i do. but that’s okay! i love how different it came out and you know me… the weirder the better!
so basically the shape of this top is (supposed to be) a circle. i made the top part from jersey so that i don’t need any closures. the bottom part is made of printed viscose crepe from a scrap of fabric i got left from this dress. and before you say it, i also love how the whole print is actually a production fault. 😀
you guessed it. since i used fabric scraps for the bottom part, there wasn’t a big enough piece to make the whole back side, hence the seam in the middle. ah, the challenges of working with fabric scraps!
i know i said that this was supposed to be a copy of the COS top, but my version actually reminds me more of Ted Baker’s flowery clothes. that doesn’t hurt at all!
this was one of those “under 3 hours” sewing projects that ended up sweetly.
it may not be normal or pleasing for everyone else, but i’ve given up pleasing everyone else anyway. as i learned last year, sewing is fun when i do it for myself, and not to get comments or approvals from other people.
on that note, while sewing this circle top, i found myself singing this particular song over and over. and how fitting, since the song is also called “Circle” (by Edie Brickell & New Bohemians).
PS. i do not own the video, song, nor the lyrics. i just borrowed them for personal use.
