top: diy tutorial below pants/hat: h&m shoes: old
I whipped up this top for my sister’s wedding last weekend after failing at searching and searching for the perfect white top to match a full-ish a-line purple skirt from zara (here). You have to have something that isn’t to flowy because of the fullness of the skirt and isn’t knit because I was a bridesmaid and I felt it needed to be a little more dressy. So I quickly whipped up a white top made from drapes (backstory here) and fancied it up with some ruching on the sleeve.
Here are jut a few wedding pictures from the phone. You can see the top in action and how stinkin’ adorable the little wedding boy outfits were. Oh I’m a sucker for suspenders, bow ties, and high socks.
1 – 1.5 yards of light to medium weight non-stretchy fabric (polyester, rayon, cotton)
top you can mimic (non-strechy)
1. cut out a top by tracing around another, making sure the sleeves are a few inches longer.
2. Sew the sides and the shoulder seams together, with the main fabric touching (RST).
3. hem the bottom, neckline and sleeve openings 1/4″ and then another 1/4″
4. Gather the sleeves about 2″ to 3″ at the bottom the sleeve along the shoulder seam line.
