Check out this beautiful pair of stunning sleeveless tops, designed for drape-y lightweight woven fabrics like crepe-de- chine, charmeuse, rayon, or double georgette,but also perfect for fluid lightweight knits, like rayon or bamboo.
Sleeveless Tops have a jewel neckline, with gently shaped side & center back seams, plus a keyhole button closure at the center back neck.
Tie-front version has an asymmetrically seamed and gathered front with ties, and finishes with a deep stitched hemline.
Draped front version has a folded and draped front sealed into the shoulder seam, with concealed darts and a narrow hem.
Both tops finish at the hip with either a faced or bound neckline & armhole.
Wear these glamorously elegant tops with your favorite slouchy pants or slim skirt for a slick hot-weather look, or use them as a super-glam layer under your favorite jacket, cardigan or shrug.
This one is easy...all sizes, either version needs 2 yards or 1.83m of 60" or 150cm wide fabric. Add 1/4 yard or 23cm of fusible interfacing, plus 1x3/8" or 1cm diameter button, and you're good to go!

Easy once you know how....must watch video instructions! I made mine in soft printed satin, and have had many compliments. I like it also because it is longer. I plan to make it in a thin patterned jersey.....may have to reduce side seams...we will see!
