A friend asked me to make her a top taking the patten from one of her well worn & loved tops so I cut it up. It was quiet tricky as had lost its shape & lots of frilly pieces too add.
I did it though (phew) with a few fittings in between as I wanted it to be perfect especially as it had to be identical to the old one, sorry I forgot to take a pick of all the scraps from the old fabric as wanting to get this post done.
It made my day when Fee stopped by the shop wearing the top after having lunch with a friend, I now have 2 more pieces of fabric to create another couple of tops but a different style I have some good pattern's to work from this time so should be a breeze :)
Hope you have a great Make: Grow & Thrift day!! Head on over to jodie if you want to join in with the link
