Today I have a fun and as always, well almost always, a very simple rectangular design.
I really enjoyed putting this one together. You must use a knit fabric for this top.
The Draped Waterfall Top
The top seam line will be sewn and then elastic zig zagged to the seam to create the shirring. The hip opening along the lower edge will be half of your hip measurement. Draw in the curved line. It should be about half way between the bottom of the rectangle and the neck opening.
Cut 2 rectangles for the sleeves that will fit into the sleeve openings. The sleeve openings should be wide enough for your bicep to go through comfortably. Once the sleeves are in place,taper them so that they will fit your wrist comfortably.
I also added a band to the lower edge, just a rectangle.
I'm planning to wear the top tomorrow, so I will try to get a picture of me in the top.
One last note on the elastic shirring. Cut your elastic half the length of the seam. Stretch it has you zig zag it in place. This will create the shirring.
