Fancy sewing: Cactus top {part two}

As a result of the over-indulgence on Christmas Day, Boxing Day turned out to be a super productive day in the Fancy headquarter. The sewing fairy must be on my side as this top turned out perfectly. Even though I was using the less than easy to understand BurdaStyle instructions as my guide it only took me less than 3 hours to put together. I love the idea of designing your own fabric and turning it into something which you can love and treasure. This top will no doubt be on high rotation in my summer wardrobe.

  1. I look forward to the day where I can whip out an amazing top like this in three hours!
    I really like the frayed edge detailing as well. Designing your own fabric makes it special and unique.

    1. I am sure you can do it. This is actually a really simple top. Just lots of gathering and the rest are super simple.
