A self changed top from London

 I had nice vacation in London with my sister on March and I bought among aothers :-) a men t-shirt for tourists.

My ambition was to make from the boring t-shirt a lovely top, because I like this london car so much!!!
So, I cut the sleeves and the horrible neck ...
and I look for ideas ...

And I found it! :

From Patrones 310.
I only used the pattern pieces 1 and 2 and only for the neck and sleeves.

So, I cut the shirt!

 And I added a red zip in the midle from the back piece.

Top Vogue 6253 from the Sixties

I love vintage pattern from the Sixties!

That's why I bought this pattern.
It's a top and a skirt from Vogue 6253 in one size
( size 12 but from the 60s)

I wanted to test the top pattern with a rest of fabric:
a cotton fabric with flowers motives

Rosalie's wearing the top with belt. 


But I'm wearing it with belt and jeans :-)

The instructions were easy to follow.
I made deeper darts on the back, because of my hollow back.

I only wanted to sew an art of muslin with this fabric ...
but I like it. The flower motives look like japanese sleeves :-)
