Strictly speaking this was not a scarf to a top, but it was an intended scarf/wrap and then it languished in the stash.
I had seen this blouse/top a few times on line while I was looking up 1930ls blouses and came across this lovely site – The dreamstress.
It is a very effective pattern for using up small amounts of ‘precious fabric’. I had a metre of tie dyed silk devore, and I had cut in half along the centre as at one time I intended to make a wrap (this has been in the ‘curated’ stash for over 10 years – good grief). I used the devored half to make this top. (the other half will be a used for a smocked top – I hope).
Its a cute top, and as its made from rectangles – pretty quick to assemble – which is a nice change as I seem to have found some lengthy projects lately which are taking longer than they should!

Amazing blouse. So elegant. 🙂 I've had a look at the reference site and I will definitely be making this one. Thanks for the link. 🙂
thank you, you will probably be shocked at how quick it makes up, I ended up hand finishing a lot of this one as the fabric is so fine and even then, it was still fast enough………….
