Here it is! Easy to wear for those slouchy days – a really versatile pattern that you can make in loads of different fabrics (V-neck Batwing top with cuff trim – FREE PATTERN here). It can look really different depending on the material it is made from. It’s shown here in a Liberty polycotton with a slight satin finish, and I have backed it in a similar weight plain fabric. It comes from Fabworks Mill Shop.
The three quarter length sleeves have a decorative vent at the top and here I have added in a contrasting satin bias binding (I bought this one rather than made it – you don’t often see a striped bias binding – I loved it and had to find a use for it!).
This top would look great made in a plain colour with contrasting bias binding trim on the cuffs. Maybe a black satin with a leopard print trim for a bit of bling. (Have a look at the post on making your own bias binding.) Or maybe a lower key grey linen with a check trim. Making your own bias binding is easy and allows you to do all kinds of fancy edgings.
If anyone wants to upload a picture of their finished pieces to their own blog or site once thay have made them, just send me a link and I will include it in my post so that other people can see your versions.
