Sheer Top

Sometimes the simplest things turn out to be the best.  Like this top:
 


The fabric is a sheer black and silver that I got at Joann's.  I paid $5.25 a yard and only used 1 yard.  I made narrow bias binding from a light-weight silvery/gray fabric I had in my stash, and used it to finish the neck, sleeves and hem.

 


I wear it with a black cami underneath.  It's nice and cool on these hot summer days.





I didn't have a pattern for what I wanted, so I altered Vogue 8880. I removed the waistline seam and the neckline darts.




 
I like how it turned out.  It's comfortable and fun and I get compliments whenever I wear it.

  2. The fabric says it all with this top. Taking out the neckline darts just allows the fabric to shine. Looks wonderful :)
