Stripe top

This top is again made from the blouse in New Look 6217.
Due to a shortage of fabric I have been creative in the cutting out. The back is pieced in 4 pieces and has the upper section cut on the cross grain.
I added a facing with a loop and button closure at the top. This enables the top to be reversed, the button undone and a V neck with collar effect when worn the opposite way round.
The small mother of pearl button was recycled from a worn out silk blouse and works well here with a small ribbon loop.
This works with all the bottoms in the plan.
Here's what the collection looks like now.
I'm going to turn the culottes into a skirt and start on the print trousers, then move on to the ponte pieces later.
