So, I sewed a top. I had a small piece of lace fabric that was leftover from these trousers and a very plain and anonymous off white jersey which I didn't know what to do with. I used them to make one top, which I call chimera top. It's a white top with a slightly weird contrasting back lace panel. I made it using a very basic V-neck A-line Tee pattern with small alterations including the back panel. I'm sure that it could have been better if I had had more lace remnant so that I could have applied generous gather in the back, though, I am not totally disappointed by the result. I think it's quite wearable. Actually, this jersey was unreasonably boring with indescribable reasons and it was as charming as a piece of tracing paper. It was pretty when I bought it, but after a prewash, something happened and it lost its good characters but boringness. I think you know what I mean... I was very relieved that I could find a use of the jersey even though it was in my experiment.
And unexpectedly, I already wore the top several times in a short period of time. We never know what happens, eh? :)
Life is fun.
I hope you're enjoying your season wherever you are!
