A girly version of the TRUCK STOP TOP.
It's made from a combination of woven fabrics cut on the bias; an Italian printed cotton and a Liberty print floral both found at Tessuti in Melbourne.
Around the armholes and neck, a bias cut double layered binding with raw edges. It's top stitched with heavy thread and and then frayed using a nail brush and a good wash.
The TRUCK STOP TOP pattern was developed for jersey fabrics so I cut the body on the bias one size bigger than I normally wear. The fit is loose and relaxed especially around the armholes; perfect for summer!
