How it all started
The least I could say is that I got a crush on this top and stars in the eyes when it landed straight into my closet.
The prints, the colors, the double collar, the poesy… how could I ever resist?
And then… I felt for this birds prints fabric near Montmartre.
The formula was quite simple:
1 cute-to-die top + 1 poetic fabric = … another version: my own.
I didn’t want to just make a copy of this one —it’s always more exiting to spice things up!—, so I decided to:
- make it tighter
- have a contrasting but simple collar (not double)
- use a Claudine frame for the collar
- insert an opening at the back
For the pattern, I used one from a Burda magazine and made the required modifications.
—I particularly enjoyed hiking the fountain and climb the “Do not pass” sign 0:)
This is the same skirt I had made in summer 2015 to go with another blue top.
