I added ties to the black crepe rectangle top I made a while ago, was just playing about to begin with to see if I could add shape to it. And it worked.
Wore it on a girls night out recently, only I ended up wearing it with flat sandals, didn’t take any pics unfortunately as I didn’t think I looked any good, but on reflection I didn’t look any worse than anyone else there that night. And I was comfortable.
I simply cut out two strips of the fabric the same as the top, and zig zagged all the way round the edge, then sewed them to the side seams. Simple yet effective.
It looked pretty fab before – a new kind of fab now. Well done! I think you have a great sense of style.
Thank you , I really appreciate your feedback. I’m thinking a dress version might be good to try.
great idea, the ties work really well!
Thank you, I just felt the top needed a little shape.
