swirl it, girl

it felt like it had been a while since i sewed a scuba fabric, so when i saw this swirly patterned one, i just had to get it. i bought only 50 cm (about 155 cm wide) to turn it into this top.

self-made top, Monki jeans.

when it comes to sewing, i’m sure you know perfectly well that i’m a copycat. so this one was no exception. if you google ‘R/H mickey tee’ you will see what i mean.

i just see it a LOT around the internet lately, and can you guess what else is seen a LOT lately? ruffles. ruffles here, ruffles there, everywhere a ruffle. well, i thought, why not marry them together?

i did not use any pattern, this was again a boxy shaped top with small modifications on the front part.

instead of using another fabric as the contrasting top part, i used the same fabric but the wrong side. that’s the beauty of scuba fabric, you can also use the wrong side as the right side!

for the lowest curve of the U part, i had to sew it by hand. i did try sewing it by machine like twice, but none of the results was pleasing enough. when in doubt, you should always go with bare hands, i say.

i really, REALLY love the outcome. i am so going to wear this top many times!
