Well it must have been quite easy to guess. I drafted it on my own. Wait! Not the entire shell, i drafted the lovely layers on the front. But I used the Colette Sorbetto top pattern as the base. Its definitely got a big deal of makeover . What say ? :D I made this top as an entry to the Terrific tanks contest at the patternreview. The rule was that we simply have to make a tank top and add more fun elements to it. It could be ruffles, gathers, yokes embellishment , painting (list s long). I chose layers. You can read my complete review here.
I was inspired by an RTW top which I saw on a mannequin recently and wanted to make one. I chose a slippery and smooth satin crepe. I wonder how I find it easy to sew sheer fabrics(this ones only semi sheer). Each time I make something out of sheer fabric I love the process of making it and of course wearing it too.I somehow have got over the feeling that slippery fabrics are difficult to sew.
Talking a little on my sweet pink top. Initially I thought it was too bright a color. But later on as the layers got added I fell in love with it. I spent a lot of time analyzing how to design the layers. Then a little thought process on how to finish the seams and raw edges. I had to try some experiments on cutting out the layers on different grain as well. To get the best effect, without getting the feeling of a bulky top.
I am planning to write a tutorial on how I drafted this one. If anyone is interested then do leave a comment. Only based on that will I be inspired to write the detailed steps:).
