This little top has already become a staple in my work wardrobe. The pattern is my own design. It is a simple darted tank top that I made quite long so that it could be tucked in properly. The neck has a little notch at the front centre and a fairly wide tie that forms a bit of a collar.
The fabric is a piece of mystery silky satin (or satiny silk?) with bright pink roses on a purple background. I picked up this piece (just enough for this top) during The Fairy Godmother Fabric Stash Raid.
Most tops I’ve seen like this are button down but I thought I’d try it without the buttons down the front. Do you think it works like this?
The back collar gapes a little so maybe in the next revision I need to curve the tie so that the inside is a little sorter than the outside and it holds its shape a little better. But the silky fabric feels great to wear and the colour brings an element of fun into the office.
