Blogtoberfest day 16:

After losing a few days of my life whilst I tried and tried and tried again to make a new pattern for a summer top......

I finally got to prototype number three and was happy.

After what seemed an eternity of preparation in finalizing and then grading the pattern, I could finally wash and cut out all my pattern pieces ready for screen printing.

I've ended up with a funky halter neck top, that the more risque could wear alone, bearing a beautiful back...but for the rest of us, it's designed as a layering piece.
In summer you could wear it over a singlet or boob tube and in winter over you fave long sleeve body tee.

I've made up 4 colorways with different prints on them and 3 of the designs were delivered to the shop on Friday.

Here's a quick snap of the purple ones on display with my new skirts using the fabulous 'Crush' fabric I showed you last week.

It's not the greatest pic, but you can sorta see the look I'm going for.
I promise to take a better pic on the mannequin, next time I'm In store.

For more great Blogtoberfest reading, be sure to head on over to Tinnies with a cuppa Joe.

  1. Looks really nice. I'll have to drop into the store soon and have a look around.

  2. I love those tops Jay - perfect for covering that bit of my belly that I don't like!
